Rear Vision is always a good source for short informative programs about recent history. In the past month it reported about Pakistan and it gave a very concise and insightful expose about Pakistani internal politics from 1947 until now. It shows how the new and traditionless state is torn, from the start between very different power factors, from Taliban and other Islamists to western oriented politicians looking to the US for support.
