Christy Lefteri, bestselling author of The Beekeeper of Aleppo, and BBC World Affairs correspondent Mike Thomson discuss the triumph of the human spirit in the most devastating of circumstances.
Lefteri, the child of Cypriot refugees, drew on her own experience as a volunteer at a refugee centre in Athens to write her debut novel, which follows beekeeper Nuri and his wife Afra, as they flee bombed-out Aleppo for an uncertain future in Britain.
In Syria’s Secret Library, Thomson tells the extraordinary true story of how the people of a besieged Syrian town found hope and inspiration in a secret underground library, risking their lives to save books from destruction and to bring hope to a fractured society.
'The Long Haul' is a documentary inspired by the life and work of Professor Sir Nigel Rodley (1941 – 2017) and honours his fight for justice around the world.
Nigel Rodney was Amnesty International’s first legal adviser, who developed the long-range plan for Amnesty’s campaign against torture.
