Back in 1991, the military government of Bangladesh was toppled through a people's uprising, led jointly by Khaleda Zia and Sheikh Hasina. In the subsequent years both women served as prime minister.
|Sheikh Hasina talks to Sir David Frost|
Last year an interim administration took charge to prepare for fresh elections. But in January the military stepped in to run that administration and the elections were postponed. Sheikh Hasina is now facing charges that relate to murder and corruption. She was recently blocked from boarding a flight home from London after the military-backed government barred her from returning.
Sheikh Hasina talks to Sir David Frost about returning to Bangladesh to face charges, her father's legacy and her hopes for the future.
