We report on Switzerland's experience of being in Europe but outside the EU. As polls indicate an increasing chance of Britain voting to leave the European Union next week, the BBC's Rob Young has been speaking to Swiss businesses about how they trade with companies in the EU. And he talks to the billionaire Christoph Blocher, who funded a successful Swiss referendum to impose restrictions on the free movement of people from elsewhere in Europe. Also in the programme, the British finance minister, George Osborne, has warned of a painful emergency budget in the event of a vote for Brexit. We hear from Mr Osborne, and have reaction from John Redwood, a Conservative party member of parliament who is campaigning for Britain to vote to leave the EU.
