What does it take to keep a business running profitably amid conflict? Reporter Venetia Rainey reports on wine makers in Syria and Lebanon and we speak to Zaytoun, a UK-based company which distributes Palestinian olive oil in international markets. Plus we ask if it's possible for companies to stay neutral. Mark Leonard, director of the European Council on Foreign Relations in London, tells us the world's most powerful countries are increasingly flexing their muscles with sanctions and trade agreements, and many companies are caught in the middle.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
