Lebanon's capital Beirut has a long history of political and social unrest that still makes headlines today. Globe Trekker's Beirut City Guide captures the city in more optimistic days, two weeks before the latest outbreak of hostilities in Lebanon between Israel and Hezbollah forces. Globe Trekker Megan McCormick explores the neighbourhoods of Basta, Solidere, Gemayze and the Hezbollah District and finds a city in the midst of regeneration. The programme also revisits Globe Trekker Ian Wright's trip to Beirut in the mid-1990s to show the evolution of this fascinating city.
