Stranded at Sea
Correspondents' stories from Thailand, Afghanistan, Jordan, Hungary and the Azores, including coverage of the migration crisis in Asia. Presented by Kate Adie.
Around the world. Today - another migrants crisis: aid workers talk of the increasingly desperate plight of men, women and children who have fled Burma but are being denied permission to go ashore in Thailand, Malaysia or Indonesia. Five months after the British and American forces left Afghanistan, instability is growing and the nation's political elite stands accused of failing to give the armed forces the support they need. We learn how part of the war in Jordan against the fighters who call themselves Islamic State is being waged in cyberspace. There's the story of 'a hot Hungarian sex machine on top of a Russian cream cake' causing controversy in the centre of Budapest and one about how the cheap flights revolution has touched down on an archipelago in the mid-Atlantic. And it's causing apprehension!
