N Korea's 'successful face' of agriculture

Al Jazeera given rare access to a co-operative farm where the government says it is trying to improve food production.

    The United Nations estimates that a third of North Korea's people do not have enough to eat.

    Al Jazeera's Teresa Bo was given rare access to a co-operative farm in Sariwon City where the government says it is trying to improve production.
