Vodka, chess, hip-hop and child soldiers...all these are linked by the Kalashnikov, the iconic but deadly Russian rifle. Some 90 million of these guns exist - and they do not die when their owners do. Now made in dozens of countries it has been fired in hundreds of conflicts since its introduction. It has a terrible claim to fame: the most effective weapon ever invented. Trigger Issues - "Kalashnikov" explains the arms trade, politics and culture through the grimly fascinating lens of the world's deadliest weapon and shows how its direct social effects have swept across whole continents. In contrast, campaigns round the world are removing guns from gangs and communities. As they are recycled and made into sculptures might the Kalashnikov one day be seen as a symbol of peace?
