The View from Here: Guca, Serbia
Brass bands and the Balkans have a long history -- and Guca, Serbia hosts a global gathering of horn players every summer. Pre-competition performances are already underway at this year's Guca Madness
Canadian journalist Lisa Hale was there last year and found good times and good beer were top of the agenda -- though some folks were keen to hijack it when it came time to strike up the band.
Nothing but mammals
CBC correspondent, Connie Watson had a dodgy musical voyage of discovery herself, in the Balkans. After hearing her tale you may never think of the Discovery Channel in quite the same way again.

When the earthquake ravaged Haiti, the world tried to help. But it remains a country of damaged homes, and damaged people.
That's been troubling Mike Landry.
He answered Haiti's call, treating victims with spinal cord injuries.
He's a Canadian physiotherapist, a professor at the University of Toronto. And a frontline kind of guy with 15 years' experience in global rescue missions.
It's been his life's work. You'd think he'd be happy. Instead, he's wracked with guilt and doubts.
Landry returned to Haiti, to see how the people he treated are doing. And to deal with the nagging questions his inner voice is asking.
He lets Dispatches evesdrop on that voice, as he searches for answers amid Haiti's fragments and the faces of those he cares for.
Mike Landry is a physical therapist, a professor at the University of Toronto, and a scientist at the Toronto Rehab Institute. His experience with emergency missions include Bosnia, Kosovo, Guatemala, Sri Lanka and Haiti.
After we first aired his story, he found himself in the midst of a growing debate. Many told him the same problems confront Canadians who can't get the rehabilitation care they need. So he's now working on a documentary film grappling with the issues raised by forgotten survivors with broken bodies.
What do you think? Is Mike being too hard on himself or right to question the way we respond to a global crisis? We'd like your thoughts. Email email@example.com.

Well down at the Kennedy Space Centre right now, they're prepping for the final flight of the shuttle program.
It's due to go up July 8 for the very last time.
NASA's vision for economic, re-useable transportation delivering people and payloads -- and perhaps space's secrets itself -- is a casualty of earthbound budget cuts after more than 40 years.
But when Atlantis does go up, Rick already knows a particular song will run through his head with the same painful intensity as the roar of the shuttle's solid rocket boosters.

The CBC's Middle East correspondent, Margaret Evans.
One of the voices you regularly hear on this program is the CBC's Middle East correspondent Margaret Evans, about to be posted back to London after almost eight tumultuous years based in Jerusalem.
But we couldn't let her go without asking her thoughts about covering one of the most dramatic yet intractable conflicts on earth.

Dispatches is always banging on about the changes emerging from the superheated economy of China. But sometimes even we're surprised at the form it takes.
Surfing for example. Who knew?
It isn't exactly "everybody's learning how." But there's at least one standout on the breakers.

- Mud-slinging and Mexican flags define decade-long battle over Trump's Scottish golf course
- The remote Scottish coastline just north of Aberdeen is a place of wild beauty, where the sand dunes rise to great heights. But there are other disorienting vistas — none more so than the site of a Mexican flag flapping in the wind. It's a not-so-subtle message directed at the man who has just become president of the United States.
- Trump delights supporters, alarms trading partners with inaugural speech: Chris Hall
- U.S. President Donald Trump's inaugural speech was tonic for the crowd that flooded Washington from those blue-collar, rust-belt states that turned on the Democrats last year when Trump offered them the brash guarantee of better days ahead.
- Analysis 'Confrontational, angry' inaugural address leaves no doubt about which side Trump's on video
- It was classic Donald Trump — a hard-hitting campaign-style inauguration speech by the new president of the United States that used "America first" populist rhetoric, attacked Washington insiders and decried the state of the country.
