Dutch politician Arnoud Van Doorn used to be a leading member of the far-right PVV or Freedom Party in the Netherlands, known for its anti-Islam propaganda. But this year he surprised his party by converting to Islam, and says he has turned his back on his former life. We also speak to Farzana Majeed, a woman from Baluchistan who is campaigning for the release of her brother who disappeared four years ago.

The legendary Cameroonian saxophonist Manu Dibango looks back on a musical career that has lasted for 60 years. And Liam Bates, a Swiss man living in China, explains how he became a TV star there called Li Mu. He presents a series of adventure programmes in which he speaks fluent mandarin and spends his time cutting off snakes heads and eating giant insects.
