Floods are the most predictable of our natural hazards and can occur far from rivers and creeks. For some types of floods, you may have a relatively long warning period and therefore time to prepare. However, flash floods can occur anywhere and with very little warning. This program explains where you should go for information about the possibility of your property being flooded, what to do when floodwaters approach and once they have receded. It also shows how the design of buildings and fences and the location of access roads can reduce the impact of flooding.

In Aleppo, Barry takes a walk through the most authentic market in the Middle East. At ten kilometres long, maybe a new pair of shoes could be handy, and a good soak and steam at the local hammam. Its souks are where you find the very best Syrian street food, and Aladdin's caves of silver and brass, meanwhile nearby Crusader castles are still haunted by a thousand and one knights.

Stefan Gates travels to one of the poorest and most corrupt areas of India, Bihar, where the rural Dalits are locked in a system of poverty and disadvantage. There he engages with one of the lowest sub-sections of the Dalits, the Musahars, or "rat eaters". These desperately poor peasants work the land for landlords, in return for a small portion of rice. To supplement their diet, they catch rats. For eradicating the rodents, the landowners allow them to keep the rats for eating. It's a gruesome perk, but with little other protein available, the rats are a great treat.

Stefan Gates travels to Venezuela in the midst of a socialist revolution led by President Hugo Chavez. He arrives the day after President Chavez is re-elected and finds a country split down the middle, locked in a battle between rich and poor. Key to this battle is the president's massive redistribution of land and food to the poor, paid for with oil exports. During the trip, Stefan cooks in the slums' soup kitchens, investigates food shortages in subsidised shops, and meets one of the richest men in the country who has been battling with "land invaders" for five years.
