When states collapse

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This week our presenters travel to Syria where continued fighting has seen large swathes of land fall out of the hands of the Syrian Government lead by Bashar al-Assad and the Ba’athist Administration. Holed up for a week in Aleppo they meet with rebel groups before going to Kurdish controlled areas and then to Homs to see how the Assad administration is coping with the changes of the past 5 years. It isn’t all political woe and challenges to power though as the team take in Umayyad Mosque and the Old City in Damascus and give you tips on souvenir buying.
