Mark Beaumont reports on the journey of the Queen's baton relay through the Commonwealth. Here, he follows the baton through more of Africa, the Falklands and on to the Caribbean.

The Queen's Baton, containing a message from Her Majesty, continues its journey to every Commonwealth nation and territory as part of the build up to the Commonwealth Games starting in Glasgow this July. Adventurer Mark Beaumont is travelling with the Baton and in this monthly update travels through more of Africa before leaving the continent as the relay visits the Falkland Islands and then on to the Caribbean. All across the Commonwealth there are stories of small communities getting ready to take on sporting giants at the Games this summer, and in this programme Mark meets some of those hopefuls... in Lesotho he catches up with some of the country's runners, he plays badminton in the Falklands and trains with rugby 7s underdogs from Barbados as they get ready to take on some of the best teams in the world.
