Is this the most dangerous school run in the world?

In much of western Nepal, basic infrastructure is sorely lacking. Some children, who live in remote villages, have to brave makeshift cable cars and even zip wires to get to class. It's dangerous, and some have died trying to reach the other side, but a decent network of bridges is still a long way off. We meet the Nepalese children risking their lives every day to get an education.

Also, after being stigmatised and taunted in the wake of their city's nuclear disaster, we see how former Fukushima residents are turning to theatre to share their story.

And you might not yet be familiar with Indian wine, but we meet one Franco-Indian businessman who hopes that's all about to change.
