"The world's problems are easily resolved through the eyes of a child."

David Amanor presents The Fifth Floor, a brand new weekly programme that revels in the variety and range of stories produced by the BBC World Service's 27 language sections.

In any given week the language services across the BBC World Service are producing hours of radio and television and streams of web output: a truly global picture of the world.

And now there is a place where you can tap into that talent.

The Fifth Floor brings you an authentic perspective on the week's global news.

From Russia to Rwanda and Burma to Brazil, Presenter David Amanor takes a sometimes playful look at the big issues and surprising stories that emerge in a week of global news.

This is an insider's view on the heart of the world service looking at how pieces are made, and the stories that enrich and add colour to our understanding of world reporting.
