Six months after unpegging from the euro, a strong Swiss franc is costing the central bank, and the country's retailers billions in lost revenue. Can it be sustained? Our correspondent, Imogen Foulkes, sends a report from the country. Also, the 'Ignorant Maestro' - Isreali conductor, Itay Talgam who trained under the legendary Leonard Bernstein, explains why company CEOs can learn a great deal from the great orchestral conductors.
