dc.description.abstract This program features some of the findings of a leaked report on the operations of the Notting Hill Carnival Arts Committee. Among other criticisms contained in the report, it also accuses the committee of being unprofessional and open to charges of corruption. Also in the program, Caribbean airline LIAT comes under fire for what is seen as complacency in its operations due to its monopolistic position in the Caribbean’s airline industry. Cuba’s controversial strategies in its fight against the AIDS epidemic are featured, and the drop in banana prices in the British market is examined and analyzed. Finally, injured English cricket captain Chris Cowdrey speaks about his injury and his disappointment at not being able to play in the fifth and final test match between England and the West Indies en_US
