Watch part two
In the week that British activists arrived in Gaza with 100 trucks of aid, we look at the blockade they broke, and the impact it is having on the quality of life of Gazans.
We speak to George Galloway, a member of the British parliament, about why he and his British volunteers made it their mission to bring goods to Gazans personally.
Also in the programme we feature a cartoon about life under siege made for an Israeli anti-blockade group by Ari Folman, the director of the acclaimed animated documentary film Waltz with Bashir.
And we spend the day out at sea with fisherman off the Gazan coast as they risk their lives for their catch. It is an industry desperately struggling to remain viable with ever-declining yields as tensions on the ground mean tighter controls imposed out at sea.
This episode of Focus on Gaza aired from March, 13, 2009.
