"Fast Food of Arabia": As Americans become increasingly health-conscious and junk food sales plateau in the States, fast food companies are spreading to new global markets, expanding their revenue - and the waistlines of their customers. Correspondent Gianna Toboni travels to Kuwait, now one of the most obese countries on the planet, to witness the health effects of an unlikely obsession with U.S. fast food.

"Nollywood": Nigeria's film business is booming. Nollywood has quickly grown into a $3 billion industry and is now the second-biggest "ollywood" on the planet, in terms of films released, behind only Bollywood, while Hollywood is third. Correspondent Thomas Morton explores the explosive productivity of Nigerian cinema, from DIY horror movies to big-budget blockbusters, by becoming a Nollywood actor himself.
