We hear about the impact the migration crisis is having on German businesses. Volker Trier is from the German Chambers of Commerce in Berlin. Meanwhile Edwin Lane reports from Sweden on the welcome migrants and refugees are receiving there. Also, Britain's main opposition party has elected the left winger Jeremy Corbyn as leader. We talk to Hilary Benn, a senior member of Mr Corbyn's team, about policies they will be pursuing. Plus, which jobs will robots steal first? You may be surprised. We step into the world of artificial intelligence. And, amidst concerns over air pollution, we ask how likely it is that drivers will face charges for driving diesel cars into some UK city centres.
