Insight, wit and analysis from BBC correspondents, journalists and writers from around the world. Presented by Pascale Harter. In this edition:

In the footsteps of a teenage 'martyr'

Libya's war is only recently over - and there is still chaos in some areas, with militias roaming unchecked. Alongside this, a new normality, free from the constant control of Colonel Gaddafi, is emerging too. It's safe to queue for bread, to go to school, to drink a coffee out in the open.

Conflict engulfed Croatia more than 20 years ago, in the violence that resulted when the former Yugoslavia split apart. The country's been at peace for years, and seems to be growing more prosperous, too. But how to commemmorate such bitter - and such recent - fighting?
