Highlights of the year: Africa

10 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 26 December 2012

Today our highlights of the year include stories of hope, history and revitalisation from a continent never short of a good story. In Somalia, Andrew Harding found a glimmer of change on the streets of Mogadishu. Mary Harper visited a town in Ethiopia devoted to the narcotic drug qat.

Presented by Pascale Harter.
