Deutsche Bank shares have slid for a second day. The noted economist Roger Bootle explains what has spooked investors about European banks. Also in the programme, pig farmers are squealing as prices for pork tumble. The BBC's Steph McGovern went to meet some, and we ask Daniel Rosario, European Commission spokesman for agriculture and rural development, what Brussels is doing about it. Plus Joe Kinahan from TD Ameritrade in Chicago tells us why the success of the new Star Wars movie on the big screen may not have been matched in the shops.
