dc.description.abstract This program reports on events in the Caribbean and in Britain. Constitutional reform in Haiti takes center stage, followed by news on Britain's war on drugs and the possibility of summer rioting in British inner city communities. The program concludes with a note of hope for victims of the dreaded disease Olivopontocerebellar ataxia, as collaborative efforts at fighting the disease have led to early identification of the gene responsible, thus giving the victims certain options with regard to passing the disease on to their children. en_US
