An Audible Gasp

An awkward question is asked in Bahrain as relations with Iran, just across the Gulf, reach a new low, plus other stories from Paris, Amman, Yangon and Baltimore. With Kate Adie.

Insight, wit and story-telling from reporters worldwide. In this edition, Gulf governments get paranoid as tensions pile up on their doorsteps and western reporters ask tricky questions; so many Syrians are seeking refuge in Jordan that aid agencies are struggling to help them find food and shelter; on the election campaign trail with Aung San Suu Kyi in Myanmar - she may win the most votes, but she won't be the country's next president; the debt we owe the Namibian Beetle - just one of the potentially life-saving lessons scientists are learning from close observation of plants and animals. And the honey-making that's going on high above the sales floors of some of the most elegant shops in Paris.
