THE SUNDAY WIRE broadcasts LIVE from Devon in the southwest of England, from the former imperial port and naval powerhouse of Plymouth, England. This week host Patrick Henningsen is joined live in-studio by UK Column editor Mike Robinson, and 21WIRE's Vanessa Beeley to discuss the week's news, an update on the situation in Yemen, as well as a review of last week’s AV7 Conference in Milton Keynes. In the second hour, we're joined by a special guest on the live link from Damascus with journalist Jamila Assi, editor of Shababeek Souria, to discuss the situation on the ground in Syria and where this conflict is heading in the next 6 months. In the third and final hour of overdrive we'll attempt to connect with our illusive roving 'democracy correspondent', Basil Valentine, for an update life, liberty and pursuit of betting on outcomes in the US elections.
