Aung San Suu Kyi's lawyer discusses the prospect of her release and what this will mean for Myanmar. Plus, George Papaconstantinou, the Greek finance minister, talks about how Greece has responded to the financial meltdown that took place in his country earlier this year. And Douglas J Feith, the US undersecretary for defence policy under George W Bush, discusses Bush's recently released memoir and the role of torture in the 'war on terror'.



Nezir Seeman

Nezir Seeman, the chaplain to the Syriac Catholic Community in the UK, talks about the recent series of attacks on Christians in Iraq and what this means for the future of the Christian community there. Plus, anthropologist Scott Atran talks about his new book, Talking to the Enemy, in which he argues that in order to understand terrorism we need to consider the relationships terrorists have with their friends and family as much as their religious motivations. And Michael Vaughan, the former England cricket captain, talks about the corruption scandals that have recently hit the cricket world and whether the upcoming Ashes tournament can restore the reputation of the sport after this turbulent year.




This episode of Frost over the World aired from Friday, November 12, 2010.
