20110101"

For many in the West, 2011 will be a year of austerity.

Will the economic tough medicine work? Or will we see more uncertainty, insecurity and possible public strife and disorder?

What will further power shifts to the high-growth markets in Asia, Latin America and Africa mean for the world's strategic and diplomatic relations?

And ten years on from the advent of social media, how has that changed the way we view and talk to each other?

Join Stephen Sackur as he mulls over the issues with some of the BBC's top correspondents, as they predict the events and people who will shape our world in 2011.

20111231"The BBC's leading foreign correspondents predict what is likely to be in the news in 2012.

BBC correspondents forecast the leading news stories for the year ahead.

The turmoil on the world's economic markets was anticipated but no-one predicted the revolution which swept the Middle East in the so-called Arab Spring. So what is likely to happen in 2012?

Owen Bennett Jones chairs a discussion with the BBC's Special Correspondent Lyse Doucet, North America Editor Mark Mardell, Newsnight's Economics Editor Paul Mason and diplomatic correspondent James Robbins.

Paul Mason was right about one thing last year, anticipating the problems faced by the Eurozone.

Lyse Doucet can lay claim to have predicted the death of Osama bin Laden but she was one year out - she thought it would happen in 2010 and failed to mention it in last year's programme.

Mark Mardell also had his eye on the Euro and will, no doubt, have something to say about America's concerns about the global effect of the European crisis in 1012.

James Robbins correctly predicted anger against austerity cuts in those countries worst hit but he was wrong about Italy where he thought prime minister 'Silvio Berlusconi would sail serenely on'.

Join our panel as they polish up their crystal ball and try to identify the key trends in a fast-moving world.

BBC correspondents look ahead20191227The end of the decade draws to a close and what a year it’s been. A US president impeached, people taking to the streets everywhere from Bolivia to Beirut, from Khartoum to Hong Kong. Young people everywhere found their voice - especially on our climate crisis, many inspired by teenage activist Greta Thunberg whose lonely protest grew to a millions strong cry.

As this year ends, some will breathe a sigh of relief that the world avoided another war in the Persian Gulf. But will North Korea’s unpredictable leader launch more long range missiles next year? Will ferocious fires and monster floods get worse and commitments get better at next year’s climate talks? And when we meet next year will it be President Trump 2.0 or a new man or woman in the White House?

So many big questions. But we have some of our big hitters here to provide plenty of answers.

Donald Trump, climate change, the Iran nuclear deal, Syria, Brexit, the Iran nuclear deal, Cuba, the Middle East - what's going to happen in 2017?

Last year when they got together the correspondents were firmly predicting that Marco Rubio would become the Republican presidential candidate – and that Britain was likely to vote to stay in the EU. So as the saying goes, making predictions is a tricky business… especially about the future. Yet our experts can at least lay out the parameters for what is likely to happen in the spheres of geopolitics, economics and society more widely – and give us essential tips on what and who to look out for in 2017.
