Iceland: Lessons for Greece?

June 16th, 2015

Episode 285 of 836 episodes

As Iceland emerges from the devastating collapse of its banking sector in 2008, we ask its Prime Minister Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson if there are lessons for Greece. Also, our reporter Elizabeth Hotson goes in search of retro office technology and finds that fax and adding machines are still in use in many workplaces, particularly in Japan. And, Phil Mercer in Sydney reports on the rise of the so-called 'grey nomad' in Australia. A growing number of Australian retirees in their 60s and 70s have taken their caravans and barbecues to follow the fruit-picking trail around the country throughout the year.
