Bangladesh and Papua New Guinea
Pascale Harter presents stories from Bangladesh and Papua New Guinea.
In today’s programme, we visit a slum in Bangladesh. Despite the difficult conditions, residents are glad to trade difficult life in farming villages for a few modern conveniences and the chance to earn money in the city. But it seems that improvements always come with a cost. David Hulme has been investigating.
Plus, Georgina Kenyon has been visiting Papua New Guinea, where astounding natural beauty and romantic fairy tales live side-by-side with a dark epidemic of domestic violence.
