8:30 Window on the World

The name Macedonia is hotly disputed by two neighbouring nations. The Greek province of Macedonia and the country calling itself the Republic of Macedonia border Lake Prespa. The villagers on the lake's shores share a language and a culture, but it is impossible to cross or drive around the lake because of the dispute with Greece over the Republic's name. Maria Margaronis visits both sides of the lake to find out why this issue is so contentious - and how a painful history is being exploited by the far-right, politicians, and other interests on both sides.
