Identity Politics

A blood sausage, a clockwork orange and a glass of dirty water. Kate Adie introduces correspondents' stories from around the world.

In Pakistan, Shazeb Jillani visits Gwadar Port where Chinese money is pouring in to finance a new Silk Road, but where some locals struggle to access electricity or drinking water. The BBC's former Germany Correspondent, William Horsley, remembers the late Helmut Kohl - an architect of the European Union, often teased for his love of pork belly and blood sausage. In Kosovo, Elizabeth Gowing visits the city famed for mining and sport. Its large deposits of silver may never be mined but could the local football team triumph in the Champions League? Will Grant sits down to watch the TV premiere of 'A Clockwork Orange', and spots signs of change in Cuba. And "Where are you from?" - a simple question for some but the cause of many a convoluted answer and quite a bit of soul-searching for Katy Watson.
