Kyrgyz cartoon targets corruption

Television programme aims to educate children on bribery and police intimidation.

    A new children's television cartoon is being launched in Kyrgyzstan with a very grown up purpose - to fight endemic corruption in the country.

    The story revolves around five children who stumble on a world where bribery and police intimidation rule.

    As Robin Forestier Walker reports from the capital Bishkek, it's a thinly disguised parody of real life.
