1. Roaring to chase away baboons in South Africa
Park ranger Leonard creeps and roars around the luxury Pezula Resort in Knysna, South Africa. He's looking for baboons, which he chases away with his imposing monkey imitation. As a result, Leonard protects the inhabitants of the resort against this type of animal trouble. He transforms in a baboon alpha male: “I make myself big and I give the warning call: Huhuhuhuhuuu!”

2. Breaking vagina taboos in Indonesia
Correspondent Jamal from Indonesia had a hard time with this report about female circumcision in his country. Topics like sex, the penis and the vagina are not the easiest themes to make a story of in the mainly religious Indonesian society. However, Jamal succeeded in shooting an impressive report about the circumcision of the two-week-old girl Alifah. Here, the doctor who performs the circumcision does not seem to have a problem with a report about vaginas.

3. Bumpy bus ride across dusty Pakistan
Watching this report about the dangerous bus trip from Peshawar to Landi Kotal will make you nervous. Just like our correspondent MudassarThis route is like a curse of God”, says the Pakistani bus driver Muhamad Arif. When driving the bus, Muhamad has to cope with lots of road-side trouble like flat tires, broken-down engines and Taliban shootings. “I must drive this bus,” says Arif, “because it feeds my children.” He keeps calm behind the wheel by allowing himself to smoke a joint every once in a while.

4. Naked hands in Egypt
Saffa covers her full body. There is no way she would take off her niqab. Only her eyes are visible. When we meet her, we can also see her hands, but only because she forgot to put on her gloves for the recording. Women are very precious in Islam. Would you put something precious out in the streets for everyone to grab? Of course not!” states Saffa.

5. Power-Shower in the USA
We desire for a hot shower when we see this report! Carlos is homeless, therefore he often walks through the dirty streets of the Bronx. That's why he really enjoys the “power of shower” at the end of a day. At the Fransciscan brothers care center he can let water and soap flow all over his body and shave his head and beard perfectly. “The shower is the best part: going in dirty, coming out clean.”
