In the first of a new series, former Paralympian Ade Adepitan investigates basketball in Cuba, where poorly paid sportsmen are forced to defect abroad to further their careers and, effectively exiled, leave their families behind. All a far cry from our own pampered sports stars. This issue is a pinpoint symptom of a political system which is too complex to be documented in only 25 minutes.
Still, if you look past the basketball, you can glimpse a snapshot of a life in communist Cuba, teasingly touching on issues that are never really explored in full. Issues of family, economy, national loyalty and oppression spring up around a central theme: is sport driven by love or money? Whether this question alone is worthy of the usually harrowing ‘Unreported World’ strand is arguable, but it certainly offers a unique angle on a much wider issue. Claire Winter
A 'life and style cafe' in Putney that's split over two floors. Taking inspiration from Nordic design, Blabar has a boho chic look and almost everything in there – from the chairs to the lighting, to the plates the food is served in – can be purchased. It serves items such as Icelandic yoghurt pots, sourdough sandwiches, sugar-free blueberry oat squares and cinnamon buns as well as a variety of hot and cold drinks including Swedish coffee. There are weekend brunches, too.
