Sex trafficking and peacekeepers

A UN sex trafficking scandal in Bosnia, the Five Stages of Grief, Beethoven in China and the controversial teaching exercise which segregated children by eye colour.

How whistle-blowers implicated UN peacekeepers and international police in the forced prostitution and trafficking of Eastern European women into Bosnia in the late 1990s.

Plus, how Swiss psychiatrist Elisabeth K├╝bler-Ross changed the way we think about death and dying when she developed her Five Stages of Grief; Beethoven's role in China's Cultural Revolution; the "friendship train" between India and Bangladesh; and the controversial teaching exercise which segregated children by whether they had blue or brown eyes.
