TURKEY: HONOUR KILLINGS

In many parts of the world, women still face the prospect of being murdered to protect family honour. It is estimated that as many as 5,000 women are victims of so-called 'honour killings' every year. One country that's been trying to do something about this is Turkey. But, some traditions -- no matter how violent -- are hard to change.

BRAZIL: THE ETHANOL REVOLUTION FROM A CANE CUTTER'S PERSPECTIVE

The bio-fuel, ethanol, is generating a revolution in renewable energy that could help reduce the world's thirst for oil. In Brazil, the production of ethanol from sugarcane is booming...but what is not clear is the impact it is having on the industry's sugarcane cutters.

DRC: SAVING THE GORILLAS

The Democratic Republic of Congo is recovering from a period of conflict which claimed the lives of millions of people. While many focus on the human tragedy, the country's wealth of flora and fauna has also suffered.
