Global news and analysis. As the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant prepares to set sail, we hear live from the river bank and speak to the Marquess of Salisbury who has organised the event. Lady Antonia Fraser discusses the relevance of the monarchy with fellow historian Philippa Gregory. And as President Assad makes a belligerent speech at the Syrian parliament, we bring together Sir Malcolm Rifkind and Lord Malloch-Brown to debate what should happen next.
Presented by James Robbins.
