BBC Radio is airing a series, which sees some of the most interesting stories from around the globe broadcast on UK airwaves, including a programme fronted by news presenter and awards host Jackie Bird.
Kate Adie presents From Our Own Correspondents - stories by the BBC's foreign correspondents - including the Greek elections, child miners of Madagascar, Cuban boxer Teofilo Stevenson and dancing in Shanghai.
Jackie Bird has been to Korea with some of the Britons who fought in the war there sixty years ago. It's a conflict which few in Britain commemorate. But there, the soldiers were applauded and thanked.
