Putting the party back into Paris

The French capital may have lost its reputation as a nightlife destination in recent years, but a secretive group called "We Are The Oracle" are hoping to restore the City of Light’s nightlife reputation. Our reporter Dheepthika Laurent heads to one of their pop-up parties.

Also on the show: as the Japanese city of Osaka hosts international jazz day, we find out why Paris is so synonymous with the musical genre.

Plus: she’s been immortalised in novels and films for centuries, but how much do we really know about Cleopatra? We check out a new exhibition which aims to find out who the woman behind the myth is.
