    Venezuela is a country in crisis - but how did it get to this stage? John Wight analyses both the internal and external factors involved and the legacy of Hugo Chavez, with a foremost expert on Venezuela.

    It's over to Latin America as Hard Facts delves into the enveloping crisis in Venezuela. With food and medicine shortages, hyper-inflation, and growing social unrest, is the Bolivarian Revolution now teetering on the brink?

    John sits down with Francisco Dominguez, National Secretary of the Venezuela Solidarity Campaign, to pick through the anti-Chavism of the western media, exposing in the process the contours of counterrevolution in our time.
