Summary THE DEADLY VOTEElection campaigning in the Philippines is in full swing, but entering politics there can be a deadly business... over 1,000 people have died in political killings in the past ten years. Journalist Mark Davis meets a candidate for local governor, Toto Mangudadatu, who lost his wife and two of his sisters in a massacre of 57 people. They were killed by a private army belonging to the region's current governor on day one of the current election campaign. It's dangerous too for journalists... 32 died in the same massacre. Mark goes to the spot where they were killed, and hears the harrowing details of what happened. But there are also high profile figures trying to turn the country's politics around, including Cory Aquino's son NoyNoy, who's campaigning for president on an anti-corruption platform and wants to put an end to political violence.SNAKES ALIVEThe Florida Everglades in the United States are known for their wildlife, but now even the local Florida Wildlife Commission wants to see one particular animal killed off. Burmese Pythons were brought to the area as exotic pets, but because so many have escaped or been dumped, thousands are now threatening the native wildlife. So hunters are being actively encouraged to capture them and sell their skins, despite criticism from animal rights groups. Video journalist Ginny Stein goes out with some of the hunters to see the scale of the problem.INTERVIEW WITH KEN FEINBERGSince the United States government bailed out banks to the tune of $700 billion last year, America has seen a backlash against the bonus-loving, risk-taking bankers and corporate executives that nearly led the country to economic ruin. But the backlash was largely ignored on Wall Street itself, until Ken Feinberg was brought in by the US Government. He has the task of working out how much these high-flyers actually deserve to be paid, especially now they're answerable to the American taxpayer. George Negus interviews Ken Feinberg, who has been described as the most hated man on Wall Street, and asks if he has a 'mission impossible' to rein in corporate greed and what hope there is of averting another financial crisis
