0201Kidnap In Syria20150202

The return of Miles Warde's series about press photographers at work. In May 2013, photographer Jack Hill of The Times was kidnapped in Syria, bundled into a car boot, and beaten round the head. He was with the reporter Anthony Loyd who was shot. They were within sight of the border when the kidnap occurred.

"They get me down, are whacking me round the head with rifle butts at this point, and the guy I've been fighting with earlier just walks round the front and smacks me straight in the face."

Jack Hill's calm account of their escape, helped by their fixer Mahmoud, has not been told on radio before. Hill is one of two staff photographers at his paper and won the 2013 Picture Editors Guild Award for his work in Syria.

Miles Warde's other programmes this week include Dylan Martinez of Reuters at the World Cup Final in Brazil; the four photographers of Document Scotland in the run up to September's referendum on independence; the flooding of the Somerset Levels, as experienced by Jon Rowley and Adam Gray of the South West News Service; and the final programme travels with Nick Danziger to Uganda, where he revisits a family of orphaned sisters he first found sheltering from the horror of the Lord's Resistance Army in 2005.

Dramatic stories from award winning photographers - the producer is Miles Warde.

0202World Cup Final in Brazil20150203

Reporter Miles Warde talks to Dylan Martinez of Reuters about the drama of the football world cup final, and how he got the shot of the winning goal. This was a bitter sweet experience, because Dylan is half Argentinian, and Argentina lost.

"But in the end there's only one thing you have to do as a photographer at a world cup final, and that is don't screw it up. Relief, pure unadulterated relief pretty much sums up how I felt when I saw these pictures."

Reporter Miles Warde travels with Nick Danziger to Gulu in northern Uganda to find three orphan sisters Nick first photographed a decade ago. The trip is part of a massive project about how people's lives are changing in eight of the poorest countries in the world.

"In 2005 one of my abiding memories of being here in Gulu was looking down this road and seeing a river of children, nothing but children, walking as fast as they could towards the night shelter, so that they would reach safety before nightfall, and not be taken by the Lord's Resistance army, who were abducting children in all of the surrounding villages here."

Find out how the sisters' lives have changed since those dramatic days.
