The Bulgarian journalist Anna Zarkova who's spent more than twenty years exposing organised crime talks about the terrible acid attack that she suffered.

John Kani reads from Nelson Mandela's autobiography Long Walk To Freedom: in this extract, he is arrested for illegally leaving the country and inciting workers to strike.

Nepalese-born artist Govindah Sah on the skies of his native country that inspire his cloudscapes.

And we meet a white African American DJ and a refugee from Sudan now living in Australia - who are both called Mandela.
