My moustache was declared 'un-Islamic'

As the Libyan government tries to persuade former fighters to hand in their weapons, we bring together a campaigner who's helping to disarm the militias and a man who still keeps an arsenal at home.

Also, a homeless tour guide in the Czech capital Prague reveals a grittier side to the city.

We hear from the Pakistani man whose moustache was declared 'un-Islamic' by the Taliban, who shaved it off at gunpoint.

And, to mark the 90th anniversary of BBC Radio, our listeners send us their messages for people tuning in in 90 years’ time.
