Polanski in Switzerland Place of refuge becomes a prison

For filmmaker Roman Polanski, Switzerland has always been a place of refuge. At his holiday chalet in the alpine resort of Gstaad, he surrounded himself with friends and enjoyed the peace and quiet of the mountains. But Switzerland was also to become his prison, the place where his past finally caught up with him, as swissinfo reports. (Julie Hunt, swissinfo.ch/SF)
