Cloaked in Mystery

Kate Adie presents correspondents' stories from around the world, including making sense of Italian politics, faking the news, and wedding suit shopping in Pakistan.

Making sense of Italian politics, faking the news and wedding suit shopping in Pakistan. Kate Adie presents correspondents' stories from around the world:

James Reynolds looks back on an eventful few months in Italy and at what filled the gap between elections in March and a new government taking office in June.
Emily Webb meets a man accused of being a witch in Papua New Guinea. He says he was almost beaten to death by his own family and now lives in a refuge alongside others who've been branded sorcerers and driven from their land.
In preparation for his wedding, Mobeen Azhar finds himself in the sprawling concrete and iron beast that is Zainab market in Karachi. A grimy and sweaty place, he says, that's considered 'too local' for some locals in Pakistan.
Sophia Smith Galer meets the male Baladi (or belly) dancer challenging gender stereotypes in Lebanon.
And the staged 'murder' of Arcady Babchenko has got Kevin Connolly thinking about fakes, forgeries and the murky world of international espionage.

Producer: Joe Kent.
