Weekend Edition: Misfits
Stories of those who swim against the tide, from around the world. Tim Whewell meets some of the few Muslims still in Central African Republic, left stranded by violence; Will Grant wonders what's on the mind of the only forensic archaeologist in El Salvador, where there are plenty of bodies to be unearthed; Gabriel Gatehouse reflects on what "Operation Iraqi Freedom" really brought to Baghdad. Simon Worrall examines the Voynich Manuscript, an enigmatic text that seems almost otherworldly; Monica Whitlock hears how a couple of Romanian friends secretly plotted against Ceasescu - and Kieran Cooke sticks out like a sore thumb in a planters' club in Assam, northeast India.
Introduced by Pascale Harter.
Producer: Polly Hope
