The Wilder Side

In this edition, Nick Redmayne revisits the chaotic streets (and choking traffic) of Benghazi, to find out how Libya's 'rebel city' is faring after Gaddafi. Darius Bazargan sees the terrible physical and social cost of Afghanistan's epidemic of heroin addiction up close. Anthony Denselow's on the trail of some imprisoned Somali pirates - in the lush surroundings of Mahe in the Seychelles, where they share the landscape with billionaire Gulf Arabs' mansions and tourists who pay thousands of dollars a night to visit. In Rangoon, Vaudine England stumbles on some decaying architectural gems and explores the lost cosmopolitan world they once housed. And Rahul Tandon explains why in India, your surname can give away more about you than you might like - even revealing your caste.
