Coverage of Margaret Thatcher's death

Listen in pop-out player

We explore how the World Service reacted to the death of the former British Prime Minster Margaret Thatcher, with the help of Andrew Whitehead, Editor of BBC World Service News, who produced an obituary programme about her. We also look at her international reputation and ask if the word "controversial" is applicable in describing her.
