Episode 1274 of 1341 episodes

The Syrian conflict has changed people's lives irrevocably and, in this programme, we allow people to reflect on the situation in which they find themselves. We hear from Sam, who has stayed in his home city of Deraa. Alia lives in a rural area which is in the hands of rebel forces. Her son joined up to fight the regime, but was killed. And, Khadija Kamara came to Britain to escape civil war in Sierra Leone. Her son Ibrahim became the first British jihadi to be killed in Syria.
