Hear the Stories our Correspondents Won't be able to Forget

Each week on this program we promised you dispatches from our correspondents around the world. For our final show, Rick was joined by three who filed many of them. Margaret Evans is the CBC's Europe correspondent in London. Anthony Germain was the CBC's China correspondent for five years. And Connie Watson is the CBC's Latin America correspondent based in Rio. Rick asked what stories they won't forget.
