Crisis in the Caucasus

On Saturday 30 August, a discussion will be held on the BBC programme Dateline London about the current problems in the Caucasus (Georgia &c). Dateline London is a forum for foreign journalists, based in London, to discuss topical subjects. One of the journalists will be from the Russian news agency Itar-Tass, which makes it a certainty that Georgia will feature heavily. Bearing in mind the sharply differing views in Moscow and Washington on said country, we should be in for a lively discussion.

Dateline London is broadcast at 12.30pm on BBC News 24, to be repeated at 2.30am on September 1st. The programme can be watched on the Net for 7 days after Saturday.


  1. Thanks so much for the information, Guido, I will definitely tune in.

    Pooh Hugs,

  2. Will be watching out !!  I have noted it on my side table here so I don't forget...
    It will be interesting to hear what others are thinking.  I actually think we are getting into a serious situation considering that we are partly reliant now on Russia for our gas...Ok for the USA to bang the drum they wouldn't be the first to be involved....on the other hand we can't allow larger countries just to invade their neighbour just because they don't like ..their..neighbours !!  Love  Sybil xx
