Following Wednesday's meeting in Geneva between Iran and the US, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany, Sir David Frost talks to Hans Blix, the former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), about Iran's nuclear programme.

This episode of Frost over the World aired from Friday, October 2, 2009. 

Hans Blix

 

This week, six world powers have been meeting with Iran, just days after the revelation that the country has a second nuclear enrichment plant and the test-firing of two long-range missiles, which experts say could reach Israel. Sir David is joined by Hans Blix, the man who led the hunt for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and the former head of the IAEA.

Abdirahman Omar Osman & Tristam Stuart

 

Somalia's fragile transitional government is appealing for international help in its efforts to bring peace to the world's most fractured nation. Sir David speaks to Abdirahman Omar Osman, Somalia's treasury minister.

Plus, what happens to all that supermarket food after the sell-by date has expired? It is enough to feed the world's hungry three times over but it is just thrown away, buried in landfill dumps. In his new book, Waste, historian Tristam Stuart followed this sorry story.

Werner Herzog

 

He has done it all - fiction, documentaries, theatre, screenwriting and acting. He has filmed in all the world's continents, including Antarctica and his films often feature heroes with impossible dreams, people with unique talents in obscure fields or individuals who find themselves in conflict with nature. Werner Herzog joins Sir David to discuss his remarkable career.

Nigel Farange & Bridget Laffen

 

Some say Ireland just will not take 'no' for an answer as the country goes to the polls for the second time in 16 months for a crucial vote on the Lisbon treaty. So, what does this vote mean for Ireland and the rest of Europe? Sir David is joined by Bridget Laffen, the chair of the Ireland for Europe campaign, and MEP Nigel Farange who wants Ireland to vote 'no'.
