This week, World Stories takes a look at amendments to Singapore's draconian death penalty laws. We've also got a report from Pakistan about a man who has devoted his life to helping others and we travel to Venezuela to find out how to make the perfect cup of coffee. In Baghdad, we visit a center that cares for young children with autism and find out how Russians like to pamper their pets.
Richard Wagner’s 200th birthday is being celebrated in style – and Arts.21 is joining in the festivities. We also meet female directors screening at Cannes, enjoy some new performances of a ballet classic, and pay tribute to Werner Büttner, a portrayer of uncomfortable truths.
