This week on WorldLink, we meet a man who crawled to freedom through a tunnel under the Berlin Wall, and hear from someone who was there the night the divide finally fell. We speak to a woman piecing together her grandfather's experience of WWII, and visit the most famous military cemetery in the US.
On this week’s program we take stock of the situation in Chile where President Pinera has been making some concessions in a bid to stem the country’s fledgling protest movement. And amid claims that US sanctions on Venezuela have resulted in the death of at least 40,000 people we’ll also be taking a closer at just how the international sanctions are impacting on Venezuelans.
