A House in Damascus

Syria's silent majority, and other BBC correspondents' reports from the United States, the Democratic Republic of Congo, France and Georgia, presented by Kate Adie.

What's happened to her house in the Old City in Damascus? Diana Darke hears how it's fared during the ongoing conflict in Syria. David Shukman is in Prescott, Arizona, a community devastated after 19 firefighters lost their lives battling a forest fire. Kinshasa in DR Congo is Africa's fastest-growing city - Jonny Hogg's been finding out how law and order's fast collapsing there too. Natasha Breed, who lives in Kenya and regularly films lions there, is shocked at the conditions a lion's forced to endure at a circus in France. And, on a lighter note, Rajan Datar, high in the Caucasus mountains of Georgia, is invited to try his hand, or rather his larynx, at the ancient art of polyphonic singing.
