Weekend Edition: Give Us the Force!

25 minutes
First broadcast:
Saturday 10 May 2014

Pascale Harter introduces stories of effort and energy from around the world. Jeremy Bowen reflects on the history behind the recent pact between the Hamas and Fatah movements in Palestine; Chris Terrill risks life and limb on the rough Atlantic waters off Mauritania with a brave crew of local fishermen; Katy Watson sees how Brazilians who've grown impatient with government promises are housing themselves in sites across Sao Paulo; Ritula Shah chews over India's economic progress (and her favourite Gujarati bread); and Nick Meo runs the gauntlet of the scam artists of Montmartre in Paris.

Producer: Polly Hope. Photo: Mauritanian fishing crews working in pairs to maximise their catch. (c) Chris Terrill
