Farmer collects rare records from India and Pakistan

Pakistani farmer Muhammad Shafi's music collection is unique - he says some of the voices he has on record cannot be found anywhere else.

Based in Layyah, in Pakistan's southern Punjab region, he owns songs from about 1,000 Indian and Pakistani singers, some of which date back to before the partition which separated the two countries.

The collector claims he has spent a fortune on the records, which he describes as his heritage.

Arif Shamim reports.
