Turkey and Egypt

Insight, wit and analysis from BBC correspondents, journalists and writers from around the world, presented by Pascale Harter.

In this edition, Rajan Datar briefly joins the cast of a smash-hit TV soap opera on set in Istanbul, and finds out how this sort of on-screen drama has been bringing prestige, clout and foreign visitors to Turkey. Tom Dinham savours the food for revolutionary thought on sale everywhere on the streets of Cairo - even right in the middle of violent political protests.
