Matthew Bannister talks to 13-year-old Isadora Faber whose blog about poor conditions at her school has started a national movement in Brazil, but brought her death threats. We also hear from British oil worker Nick Roddy who was kidnapped in the Niger Delta by the militant group MEND. And from Washington Amy Grant Wolfe tells us how she created a ballet based on the life of her son Colin, a young US marine who was killed soon after he started serving in Iraq.
