Everything Under The Sun

S3 E2. How do people become refugees? With Clarissa Ward, CNN.

Friday, 17 September

In this week's show we answer three questions from Matilda, Ben and Octavia with help from special guest expert Clarissa Ward.


Clarissa is an award winning journalist who reports from conflict zones including recently in Afghanistan during the Taliban's takeover of Kabul - she was on the ground covering events for CNN.


So she is perfect person to answer this excellent question about how people become refugees, from Matilda who has recently been donating clothes to refugees from Afghanistan.


We talk about the invention of clothes, when it happened, how we know from studying lice, what early clothes might have looked like!


Lastly a fun question about Daddy Long Legs which are remarkably interesting creatures! Perhaps we ought to also call the lady ones Mummy Long Legs to be fair?
