Guatemala and Canada

Linda Pressly traces one man's epic journeys between the USA and Guatemala - taking in gang life, deportation, the loss of a leg and coercive rehab programmes on the way. Amid the violence and the strong-arm tactics of the State in Guatemala City, can he really use his command of English to forge a new life as a call-centre worker?

And Sian Griffiths pays a stomach-churning visit to a farm in Ontario which raises insects for food. Despite all sorts of expert projections claiming that insect-eating or entophagy might be the only way to feed the world's growing population enough protein, some people still have a gut reaction to the idea - no! Would you fancy a cricket cookie?
