This Storyville episode follows four people looking at the conflicts in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

In a country where war has cost the lives of five million people, the most of any conflict since World War II, we meet a government whistleblower, a mineral dealer, a patriotic military commander and a displaced tailor who give their differing views surrounding all the chaos the fighting has caused.

This is Congo is on BBC Four at 22.00.
