Pakistan and Italy

Listen in pop-out player

Pascale Harter introduces personal reflections, insight and analysis from BBC correspondents worldwide. In this edition, Lyse Doucet examines what's fueling Nawaz Sharif, as he begins a third term of governing Pakistan as Prime Minister. He's facing as much public curiosity as ever - and not only about what he has for breakfast these days. Alan Johnston examines more historical questions in Italy, about how Mussolini's Fascist regime of the 1930s paradoxically created one small space where men could be openly gay - but it was on a prison island, designed for those interned because of their sexuality.
