Asia: June 2012 Archives
Wednesday June 20, 2012
From our correspondents around the world...
The crew at Dispatches preparing the final show: (from left: Alan Guettel, Rick MacInnes-Rae, Nima Shams, Steve McNally, Alison Masemann, and Dawna Dingwall).
It's our last program but we're going out with boats, baboons, and a bang.
We'll touch on some of the stories we've brought you over the years, some of the places we've been, and some of the strange and sublime people we put into your radio.
Along the way, we'll hear some of the moments that stopped us in our tracks. And hear some untold stories from our our correspondents.
We saved the best for last.
