Comedy at the ballot box

With Mark Coles. As Beppe Grillo's success causes stalemate in the Italian Parliament, German stand-up comedian Henning Wehn examines the close relationship between politics and comedy. It's famous for its sun and its surf but could Australia's Gold Coast become one of the world's top artistic attractions? And Indian documentary maker Anand Patwardhan talks about his film 'Jai Bhim Comrade' that took 14 years to complete and is an unflinching look at the appalling situation for those at the bottom of India's caste system; the dalits or untouchables.
