President Rouhani is in Europe, boosting trade ties for Iran. We hear how planes could help rebuild the country's economy from Dr Eftekhar Dadkhah, a former advisor to Iranian transport ministers. Also in the programme, the VW emissions scandal has triggered a major overhaul in the way new cars are approved for sale in Europe. We ask Greg Archer from the campaign group Transport and Environment if proposed measures go far enough. Plus we hear from Ireland, where a major report has been published into the origins of the country's banking crisis. And we get the lowdown on toy trends for the coming year, from the BBC's Elizabeth Hotson at the London Toy Fair.
