On this episode of Frost over the World: Ejup Ganic, the former Bosnian president, on facing a British court hearing; American pollster Frank Luntz on the UK's first prime ministerial election debate; Martina Navratilova on her toughest opponent to date; and the niece of the late Benazir Bhutto on how the history of Pakistan could be told through the story of her family.

This episode aired from Friday, April 16, 2010.

Ejup Ganic



This week, Ejup Ganic, the former Bosnian president, faced a British court hearing following demands from Serbia that he be extradited for war crimes.

Ganic was indicted last year by a Belgrade court over a 1992 incident in which 42 wounded soldiers from the Yugoslav army were said to have been unlawfully killed.

The allegations have already been rejected by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, but a judge at the court in London agreed that the process to extradite Ganic to Serbia could go ahead.

He joins the show to discuss.

Frank Luntz and Norman Davies



The UK's first-ever prime ministerial debate was broadcast on British television last night. The debate was between the leaders of the three main parties - Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Nick Clegg and follows a tradition that was first started in the US 50 years ago.

So in one of the tightest British elections of recent times did this political showdown actually change anything? Sir David talks to the American pollster Frank Luntz. 

Plus, Poland's president, Lech Kacyzinski, the first lady and dozens of the country's military and political elite were killed when their plane crashed in Russia last Saturday.

Kacyzinski was on his way to commemorate another Polish tragedy, the Katyn massacre of 1940, where 22,000 Poles were executed by Soviet troops. Sir David talks to one of Britain's leading historians, Professor Norman Davies, about this event.

Martina Navratilova



Tennis champion Martina Navratilova has had many sporting battles over the years, with 59 grand slam titles under her belt. She was been described by Billie Jean King as "the greatest singles, doubles and mixed doubles player who's ever lived".

Now she faces perhaps her toughest opponent to date - breast cancer, which she revealed to the world earlier this month.

Fatima Bhutto



The history of modern Pakistan could be told as the story of one family: The Bhuttos. From their time as feudal landlords to their present position as leaders of Pakistan's ruling PPP Party they have dominated the tumultuous and bloody politics of their country.

Fatima Bhutto is the daughter of the murdered Murtaza Bhutto, the niece of the assassinated former prime minister, Benazir Bhutto, and the granddaughter of the executed former president and prime minister, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.

She joins Sir David to talk about her new book, Songs of Blood and Sword: A Daughter's Memoir.
