Iran and Nigeria

Jeremy Bowen analyses the ploys of both diplomats and journalists while observing nuclear negotiations in Geneva. Fancy footwork and a level of discretion are required in both professions - but how exactly can a salad nicoise give strategic advantage? And what are the chances that the next round of talks about Iran's atomic ambitions can forge some sort of international consensus?

Plus, sweating for fame, Will Ross visits the sweltering hothouse of talent which is the Lagos School of Music, and takes in a satirical photographic series, which prove that the arts are alive and well in this teeming city.
