Greece and India
Dispatches from foreign correspondents, presented by Pascale Harter.
Greece’s economic woes are well-known, and the effect of government cuts and austerity is being felt by ordinary people all over the country.

Also in the programme, Anu Anand has been living a relatively comfortable existence in India for two years. But she’s lost count of the number of times she’s had to call an electrician, or a plumber.
