The owner of the Rana Plaza factory complex has been charged with murder. We hear from the BBC's Akbar Hossein in Bangladesh, and discuss the issues with Sam Mayer, from the campaign group "Labour Behind the Label", which has been campaigning on behalf of Bangladeshi garment workers. Also in the programme, the tale of the $200,000 Apple 1 computer, which was thrown away - and recovered by garbage men. Robert Dowell at the National Museum of Computing at Bletchley Park here in the UK tells us why the computer is so valuable. Plus our regular commentator Lucy Kellaway launches a campaign against the phenomenon of "humble-bragging" on social media.
From finding awe in Hubble images to visiting the doctor, science is everywhere in our lives. Whether we wear a white lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since eighth grade, science affects and changes us. We all have a story about science, and at The Story Collider, we want to hear those stories.
