Duration: 30 minutes

This month, 'Inside the Middle East' travels to Morocco, exploring several aspects its rich culture – film, music and traditional leather making.

The programme visits Casablanca, Morocco’s bustling commercial hub to meet filmmaker Nabil Ayouch. His latest film ‘, 'Horses for Gods' premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2013 and is being talked about as a potential Oscar contender. The film explores the rise of radical Islam in Casablanca's impoverished outskirts in the late 1990's.

Also in the show, host Hala Gorani (pictured) takes a train journey to the ancient city of Fes to meet the Algerian band El Gusto. The group is comprised of venerable Jewish and Muslim musicians who hope to preserve the sound of ‘chaabi’ music – a blend of Andalusian, North African and Arabic folk music. The singers rose to fame in the early 1960s but were disbanded in the wake of the Algerian War of Independence. Now, over fifty years later, they have reunited and are playing at the Fes Festival of World Sacred Music.

‘Inside the Middle East’ also looks at the tradition of making handmade leather at one of the oldest tanneries in the world. The process of leather-making hasn't changed much since the 11th century with Moroccan leather craftsmen handing their expertise down to their sons and grandsons. In the face of modernisation, however, many of these artisans wonder how much longer their traditional methods will last.

This month’s ‘The Art of Movement’  looks at the science behind a new generation of highly-developed, acrobatic flying robots.

Humans have long been fascinated by the power of flight,  from Leonardo Da Vinci to Orville and Wilbur Wright, inventors and pioneers have designed machines to soar through the air. With the latest advances in technology the machines are getting smaller, more manoeuvrable and, perhaps most interestingly, are able to fly autonomously.

Host Nick Glass (pictured right) heads to California’s Stanford University to meet a professor who has been studying the physiology of birds’ wings using high motion capture cameras, implementing his discoveries into the design of a fleet of flapping micro-air vehicles.

The programme also visits Professor Raffaello d’Andrea (pictured left) at his ‘Flying Machine Arena’ in Zurich. D’Andrea has created a series of complex algorithms that allow airborne robots to autonomously perform acrobatics, build structures and play ping pong with each other. The idea is that, one day, these machines will be able to think faster than humans and fly faster than birds.
