Colombia's Drug War and Condoms in Ethiopia

11 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 14 May 2014

BBC Security Correspondent Frank Gardner is out and about in the Amazonian town of Puerto Leguizamo, in the south of Colombia. He inspects the new hovercraft (made in Britain!) helping the Army and Navy beat back the drug trade, and enjoys - if that's the right word - a night out with the staff of the local army base. In Addis Ababa, capital of Ethiopia, James Jeffrey is exploring how dilemmas over aid versus advertising are played out in one very special sector of the economy - the market for condoms. What makes them appealing to consumers - and how much could, or should, they be sold for?
