Remember that? Remember when the news came almost exclusively from the Middle East, when the apparently well-established despotic leaders of Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and the Yemen were all felled like ninepins and all that international pundits could discuss was which would be next to capitulate to the power and rightness of democratic forces? What happened next? Is Egypt safe? Thriving? Does Libya boast a regenerated and just society? And where to for those states that were teetering on the brink – Sudan for example?

Seasoned war correspondents  Lindsey Hilsum and Patrick Cockburn are joined by Afghanistan expert James Fergusson to put us in the picture and give us an inside view of what may be in store.
