Pakistan is in a tricky situation. It is under constant scrutiny by the world media but is more often than not described in terms of its problems.

There are indeed difficulties - bordering the unsettled nations of Afghanistan and Iran puts it in a precarious position. A poor and badly educated population for the most part is not helping the country's growth.

There is hope.

The wealth of natural resources, a growing, urban population and a more democratic government all point to a positive future.

But with the NATO withdrawal from its troubled neighbours nearing, Pakistan's survival hangs in the balance.

Simon Long's special report includes the following sections:

Perilous Journey
Too close for comfort
State of vulnerability
Captain's innings
In the shadow of the mosque
Lights off
A taste of Hunny
Always with us
Dripping with blood
Going with the flow
