A BBC radio article (podcast?) about honour in Japanese culture, in the Shakespearean world and in the present Middle East.

In this edition we examine the honour-codes of the Japanese samurai, we explore honour in the works of Williams Shakespeare and look at the persistence of so-called honour killings.
