North Korea: BBC team begins week in Pyongyang

This week, North Korea will open its first Workers Party Congress in nearly 40 years, where supreme leader Kim Jong-un is expected to formalise his own succession and set out his agenda.

Getting inside North Korea is always difficult, but our correspondent Rupert Wingfield-Hayes has been given rare access, along with three Nobel laureates and a European prince.

This is the first of his reports from inside North Korea.
