Summary INFECTED! The discovery that hundreds of Guatemalans were intentionally infected with syphilis and gonorrhoea without their consent may have prompted a recent apology from Barack Obama, but the legacy of the 1940s United States medical experiment goes on. Video journalist David O'Shea has been to Guatemala to speak to some of the few surviving victims, and the families that inherited the disease because many of the 'human guinea pigs' were not adequately treated. This Guatemala experiment was only uncovered last year by historian Susan Reverby, who'd been looking into a similar project in Alabama from the 1930s. Both were established by sexually transmitted disease expert, the late Dr John Cutler, who continued to defend his methods. But with so many lives ruined, how can the victims and their families find an end to their suffering? INDIA'S RED TIDE Maoist guerrillas have been at war with the Indian government for over 40 years... challenging the capitalism which they fear will take over their land and its mining resources, and instead proposing a communist way of life. It's been a bloody conflict, with thousands of people killed and the Naxalites, as they're also known, pushed into a nomadic existence deep in the jungle. Sunday's Dateline gets a rare glimpse into the lives of a group of people seen as terrorists on one side and human rights activists on the other. LA LAID BARE Mention South Central Los Angeles to most people and they think of it as a crime-ridden no-go neighbourhood, famed for the race riots of the 1990s. But artist Mark Bradford is challenging the stereotype of the area and its people, not just in LA, but across the United States, with his unconventional artistic take on where he lives. Video journalist Yaara Bou Melhem visits his studio to hear about his work and follows him to an exhibition of his art in Chicago, where he inspires a new generation of artists to break out of the mould. And she discovers much more about life away from the LA glamour, in an area of the city that most people never even see.
