This weekend, From Our Own Correspondent is on the move, with reports on journeys of all kinds, from migration, to fleeing war or going on holiday.
WIll Grant in Mexico meets migrants trying to get to the US, at great risk to their health, and lives. Alan Johnston on the Italian island of Lampedusa meets migrants who've survived dangerous journeys across the Sahara desert and the Mediterranean sea. Nigel Wilson in Jordan meets Syrian refugees full of trepidation as they are about to take the bus back to Damascus. Madeleine Morris flies to work assignments in China and Fiji - with her two-year old daughter in tow. Peter Day is 35,000 feet up in the air, enjoying the views you only get in economy class seats. Julia Langdon is surprised by what she finds in Albania, when she finally goes there after decades of gazing at the country across the sea from the Greek island of Corfu. And Edward Lewis enjoys the many well-preserved Roman ruins in Algeria, finding that the ancient baths are still very much in use.
