This November marks 30 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall and the beginning of the end of the Cold War. We look at the legacy of those events – political, economic and social. A wounded Russia. A united Germany. A lone US superpower. Freedoms won but in some cases at a cost. Our panel: Kristina Spohr is the author of Post Wall, Post Square, a history of the global exit from the Cold War; Allan Little is a former BBC special correspondent, who reported on the break up of Yugoslavia in the 1990s; Trevor Royle is a journalist and author specialising in international affairs and defence.
