World Weekly with Gideon Rachman
  • Sudan, Haiti and US politics Jan 13, 2011
  • In this week's podcast: As southern Sudan votes in a referendum on independence we hear from our correspondent in the region, Katrina Manson, about the huge exodus of people from the North to the South in anticipation of the a country being created. Over 300,000 people died in Haiti in 2010 in a devastating earthquake. One year on, what has happened to the reconstruction effort? Andrew Jack reports from Port-au-Prince on a nation struggling to rebuild. And in the US, the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords has shocked the nation, and prompted questions about incendiary political debate. Is it acceptable to “target” the opposition?

    Presented by James Blitz, with William Wallis, FT Africa editor, and James Crabtree, FT comment editor in the studio.
