BBC HARDtalk on the road in Venezuela Going Undercover In Venezuela | Foreign 5 months ago   26:11

As anti-government demonstrations sweep across Venezuela anger over the country’s economic and political crisis grows.
Shortages of food, medicine and other basic supplies, and an inflation rate thought to have topped 1000%, have left more than 80% of Venezuelans living in poverty.
Recently opposition leaders accused President Nicolas Maduro of mounting a coup against democracy when he tried and failed to abolish the powers of the opposition-controlled National Assembly. The socialist President claims that the United States and other western powers are colluding with domestic enemies of the socialist revolution.
Though foreign journalists are mostly banned from the oil rich nation, Stephen Sackur presents this special edition of HARDtalk on the road from Venezuela.
