Off The Record


It's hard to believe, but more than half of the children in Indonesia aren't entitled to the most basic rights. The problem lies in a registration system that most parents in the country don't understand. And those who do, can't afford it. Andy Saputra went into the slums on the outskirts of Jakarta to find out about the efforts to save a forgotten generation.

Agent Orange Orphans


When U.S. forces withdrew from Vietnam nearly 40 years ago, they left a grim legacy - the after-affects of Agent Orange. It not only affected people in Vietnam, but thousands of U.S. and allied troops who were also exposed to it. They received compensation from the manufacturers of Agent Orange in 1984, but there's still no talk about compensating Vietnamese victims. Even though the U.S. has never admitted liability, it is spending millions of dollars on clean-up efforts, as Martin Lowe reports. 

A warning: some images in this story are disturbing.

No Child Left Behind


There is an English expression: “You commit the crime, you do the time.” But what happens if you’re the only parent your child has to rely on? It’s a dilemma facing hundreds of thousands of parents in China, parents who are sent to jail and have to rely on others to care for their kids. Many turn to extended family, but some don’t even have that option. Tang Bo visited one place in Beijing, founded especially to help children of criminals who had nowhere else to go.
