May 17th, 2016

Episode 527 of 645 episodes

There's been a recovery in the global oil price. We ask Total's chief executive, Patrick Pouyanné, whether it will last. Also, Andreas Schierenbeck, chairman of ThyssenKrupp Elevators, tells us about a new kind of lift the company is developing that goes not only up and down, but sideways too. How will it transform the way we design and construct buildings? Plus, Jeremy Wagstaff, Thomson Reuters' chief technology correspondent for Asia, wonders what driverless cars will do to the way we use roads.
