Thailand's Thammasat Massacre: Historians unearth memories of 1976 tragedy

It's one of the darkest chapters in Thailand's history. On October 6, 1976, state forces and far-right militants killed dozens of pro-democracy students who had protested the return of military rule. Today, 41 years later, no one has been held responsible for the Thammasat University massacre. But a group of Thai academics is hoping to change that - we find out more.

Meanwhile, thousands of Vietnamese women are looking for love in South Korea. It's a top destination for women trying to escape poverty. Many of the marriages are arranged illegally, but the brides are undeterred by the prospect of tying the knot with a complete stranger.

Also, in China, the country hasn't forgotten its Communist history. We take a look at the Red Culture Camp, a three-day retreat run by the ruling party. The camp is run in Jinggangshan, considered the "cradle of the Chinese revolution". Its aim is to ignite the Communist spirit in China's younger generations.

And finally, we take a look at the industry of essential oils in India. Just a couple of drops can relieve headaches, back pain or rashes. They are a popular alternative for treating common health complaints, and sales here in France have jumped by 20 percent annually in the past few years.
