Hong Kong, Los Alamos and Hiroshima

Listen in pop-out player

Owen Bennett Jones introduces personal insights, experiences and analysis from BBC correspondents and writers from around the world. In Hong Kong, Jennifer Pak sets out to investigate the territory's notoriously cramped and expensive housing market. This is a place so crowded that "home" can mean a single room - or even a wire-mesh cage - and a tiny apartment of 30 square metres all to yourself could be called luxury. Sarah Birke compares the very different nuclear narratives presented in two museums - in Hiroshima and Los Alamos - and asks what they mean for debates over disarmament today.
