By 22 November 1963, the date of his assassination, President Kennedy had made many enemies. He had declared war on the Mafia, racial prejudice and the industrial/military interest in Vietnam. He had humiliated Krushchev and Castro, who both wanted revenge over the Cuban Missile Crisis. Even to this day, conjecture surrounds the ballistics evidence and whether two assassins were involved. New film material from Washington has just been released.

An investigation that exposes the way children are used to produce the raw materials that drive a multi-billion dollar industry. Cocoa beans are the basic ingredients of chocolate. They are one of the most heavily traded commodities in the world. In Europe, major chocolate makers have signed up to Fairtrade programs, claiming some of their products are made without abusive labour practices. Now the BBC's Paul Kenyon, posing as a cocoa bean buyer, puts those claims to the test, revealing the Fairtrade seal of approval on chocolate is not all always what it appears to be.

They're the daughters of the rubble, the sons of the dust. They're the little children who somehow survived the devastating cataclysm that shattered and crushed one of the world's poorest countries - Haiti. Some were already orphans, many more would be made so by the earthquake. The epic quake brought an unimaginable toll and while the outside world tried to help, what could possibly be done for the smallest and most vulnerable?

Giant catfish the size of family refrigerators hide in the depths with 1200 other species of exotic wildlife. Further downstream are rare and mysterious freshwater dolphins. Communities frame their lives around what the river provides: food, jobs, transport - or if you're a bunch of laughing children - a skylarking dip in the backyard splash pool. By the time the Amazon of Asia - the mighty Mekong River - reaches Laos it's already been put to serious use by the Chinese and now the little landlocked communist nation wants to do the same, big-time.
