Asian Diasporas is an intermittently broadcast forty-minute BBC Radio 4 documentary programme about Asian communities around the world, first transmitted in 2007 and so far consisting of three episodes. The programme has been introduced by Jatinder Verma, "himself a child of the diaspora", who was born in Dar es Salaam and grew up in Kenya and was the first Asian theatre director to direct a play at Britain's National Theatre. Asian Diasporas's broadcast history to date consists of Family which looked at Japanese people in Latin America and elsewhere; Business, which examined Korean family business in the USA; and Politics, which focused on Chinese dissident activists in the USA and Europe. All three themes are inter-woven into each episode. The series was produced by Allison Puranik and edited by Maria Balinska.
