A country gets its voice back

After 20 years in Norwegian exile, journalists Aye Chan Naing, Than Win Htut and the rest of radio and TV-broadcaster The Democratic Voice of Burma (DVB) return to Myanmar to test the boundaries of the country's newfangled democracy. The dictatorship that has ruled the country for so long is gradually coming to its end, and freedom of speech is slowly growing stronger. DVB fought for democracy in Myanmar from their offices in Oslo, but now the time has come for them to continue their work in their homeland.
