Twenty-five years since the end of apartheid, South Africa is still wrestling with its legacy. Vast swathes of farmland are still owned by the white minority, and now the government is looking to speed up land reform across the country. John Ray reports. Debi Edward meets families in South Korea who have been separated from relatives in the north for decades. For centuries in remote parts of Northern Albania, an extraordinary medieval tradition has been upheld allowing some women to live as men if they took a vow of celibacy. These women - known as sworn virgins - were allowed the privileges and freedoms of a man. Penny Marshall reports.

The American Press and the Cold War: The Rise of Authoritarianism in South Korea, 1945–1954

The American Press and the Cold War: The Rise of Authoritarianism in South Korea, 1945–1954 By Oliver Elliott

During the Cold War, the United States enabled the rise of President Syngman Rhee’s repressive government in South Korea, and yet neither the American occupation nor Rhee’s growing authoritarianism ever became particularly controversial news stories in the United States. Could the press have done more to scrutinize American actions in Korea? Did journalists fail to act as an adequate check on American power? In the first archive-based account of how American journalism responded to one of the most significant stories in the history of American foreign relations, Oliver Elliott shows how a group of foreign correspondents, battling U.S. military authorities and pro-Rhee lobbyists, brought the issue of South Korean authoritarianism into the American political mainstream on the eve of the Korean War. However, when war came in June 1950, the press rapidly abandoned its scrutiny of South Korean democracy, marking a crucial moment of transition from the era of postwar idealism to the Cold War norm of American support for authoritarian allies.

As President Trump and the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, prepare for an unprecedented summit, Panorama investigates North Korean modern-day slavery. It is thought that more than one hundred thousand North Korean workers are posted abroad to earn money for the cash-strapped regime - money that is being ploughed into Kim Jong-un's nuclear weapons programme. An international consortium of journalists has filmed undercover to reveal secret work gangs operating in Russia, China and Poland.
