Extraordinary personal stories from around the world.

Today, we meet the forensic investigator on the front line in Mexico's drug wars.

Also today, the real story behind a modest British Olympic hero - we speak to Patricia Russell, the daughter of sprinter Eric Liddell who won gold in 1924 and whose story was the inspiration for the film Chariots of Fire.

And the 24 year old Turkish woman who's started a new fashion magazine aimed at young Islamic women.
