Summary Are US pharmaceutical companies using India's poor as guinea pigs in sometimes deadly trials for new medicines?; Dateline reports on the challenges ahead for the world's newest nation, South Sudan, and the hope amongst its newest generation; and Meet Australian teacher Nicholas Rowe, who helps young people in the Middle East express their feelings through dance. EXPERIMENTING ON INDIA Are US pharmaceutical companies using India's poor as guinea pigs in sometimes deadly trials for new medicines? A special investigation has found illiterate peasants have been given pills and injected without their informed consent, as clinical trials spread rapidly throughout the developing world. Bhopal Hospital, built in the aftemath of the world's worse industrial accident, has been the site of one trial. Residents thought they were being treated for the effects of the disaster. Reporter Zeina Awad from Al Jazeera travels to Bhopal where locals say they had no idea they were part of a clinical trial. One Indian couple describe their daughter collapsing and dying after being given medication they knew little about. Awad then grills corporate representatives and drug industry regulators in the US. The pharmaceutical companies remain tight lipped about their work, but the FBI has now launched an investigation into the pharmaceutical industry's increasing reliance on overseas trials. BUILDING THE NATION It was a difficult birth following decades of civil war, but now the celebrations are over and the world's newest nation of South Sudan is facing an equally difficult upbringing. Conflict remains with Sudan, which disputes the oil-rich Abyei region on the border between the newly-divided countries. And reporter Yalda Hakim sees for herself the lacks of basics like roads, schools and healthcare services, which will slow its development. But there's also a new generation of South Sudanese children, who are too young to remember the conflict and a major hope for the future, and Yalda meets South Sudanese Australians, who've returned to help rebuild their country. So how will South Sudan cope with the growing challenges ahead? DANCING FOR HOPE You would think that the Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon are about as far removed as you could get from the world of Australian ballet. But for over 10 years, teacher Nicholas Rowe has devoted himself to helping young people in the Middle East express their feelings through dance. Video journalist David Brill follows him to Beirut's Burj Barajneh camp, where Rowe and his students dance through the ramshackle streets in a challenge to the oppressive conditions. And in the West Bank he visits former students who have been helped through the region's political and social turmoil by his work.
