What future for Medellin?
The Mayor of Colombia's second city is trying hard to improve it's image.

In a HARDtalk interview on 11 October, Stephen Sackur talks to the Mayor of Medellin, Dr Sergio Fajardo.

Colombia has experienced decades of violence: the result, say UN officials, is the greatest humanitarian catastrophe in the western hemisphere.

The Government in Bogota has launched a controversial justice and peace initiative, but can it deliver either?

Stephen Sackur talks to Dr Sergio Fajardo, the Mayor of Medellin, a city long associated with the narco-traffickers.

Can Medellin shed its negative image?

HARDtalk can be seen on BBC World at 03:30 GMT, 0830 GMT, 1530 GMT, 1830 GMT, 2330 GMT

It can also be seen on BBC News 24 at 04:30 and 23:30
