BBC shines a spotlight on Turkey

If you haven't visited the BBC lately then you might be interested to know that is doing a whole series about Turkey, looking at the economy, history and culture. Visit:

BBC News - Turkey Direct

or Google "BBC News Turkey Direct" for content.

Current content:

Working Lives, Johnson meets six of the city’s residents including a female CEO who started her own textile company as a new mother; Gaziantep’s finest baklava baker, whose honey-soaked pastry studded with crushed pistachio nuts has gained popular acclaim; and a seventh generation butcher with a side-line of writing poetry, who has already published 14 collections of verse so far. We also meet one of only two traditional skewer-makers still working in the city; an English teacher who settled in Turkey after leaving Afghanistan at the age of eight; and an owner of a successful estate agency whose business is thriving following the influx of Syrian refugees into the country.

Re: BBC shines a spotlight on Turkey

I notice that they do not appear to touch on the problems in Turkey. In particular the hundreds of rip-offs perpetrated by Turkish nationals upon unsuspecting prospective purchasers of property. It is my opinion that no stories about Turkey can be complete without touching, at least, on these swindles and swindlers.

I have emailed them and asked if they will be covering this particular aspect of Turkey, but am not holding my breath for a reply!
