Europe and Cuba

Pascale Harter presents dispatches from around the world.
In this edition, Allan Little has been reflecting on the changing map of Europe. He’s been talking to young Europeans with few memories of the division that split the continent, and no recollections at all of the wars which tore nations apart. But in a journey to Poland he finds that history is still never far from the surface.
Also in the programme, Will Grant has been in Cuba, where many people seem to have a claim to fame. Good thing then, that our correspondent sees some proof when he meets a man who claims he was one of Fidel Castro’s bodyguards.
