Summary PAINFUL LESSONSWhen footage of a primary school teacher assaulting a pupil was released on the internet earlier this year, it caused an uproar in South Korea. It was the latest in a string of secretly-filmed videos that have exposed violent teachers and sparked debate about the use of corporal punishment. South Korea has traditionally allowed corporal punishment for 'educational' purposes, but this recent incident has driven some officials to ban the practice outright. Now many teachers and parents are fighting back - arguing that without corporal punishment, there will be chaos in the classroom. Video journalist Amos Roberts has been to South Korea to hear both sides of the debate.GHOST SHIPOn Sunday's Dateline, video journalist Nick Lazaredes has an international tale of intrigue that's worthy of a spy novel...It concerns a nondescript Maltese cargo vessel called the MV Arctic Sea, which was reportedly hijacked off Sweden and later disappeared.But if it was really carrying nothing more than a load of Finnish timber, why was the Russian Navy sent to find it?Could Israeli forces have intercepted it, concerned that weapons on board were being taken from Russia to the Middle East to be used against them?And how did it end up off Cape Verde in West Africa, when it should have been heading for Algeria?Nick attempts to find the answers to this maritime mystery.THE UNWANTEDJust a few kilometres from the gleaming centre of Paris, live some of France's 400,000 Roma people, or gypsies, but for how much longer?French President Nicolas Sarkozy wants to clear them off the streets and out of the country - they're being forcibly removed from their illegal campsites and paid to return to their native Romania or Bulgaria.But the move has prompted worldwide criticism and accusations of ethnic cleansing.95% of them hold French citizenship, but are excluded from working and claiming benefits, and they ask where they're supposed to go and how they're supposed to survive.Filmmaker Alexis Monchovet has been out on the streets of Paris to capture their struggle against poverty and persecution, in a story narrated by Victoria Strobl.International current affairs hosted by George Negus.
