Might the European ideal of free movement of people be sacrificed for security's sake? We discuss with Francois Costantini, a political advisor to the National Front at the European Parliament, and Pervenche Beres, leader of the French Socialists in the European Parliament. Also in the programme, the latest news in the debate over whether pesticides are to blame for the collapse of bee colonies. We talk to Peter Campbell who heads up research at pesticide manufacturer Syngenta, and Sandra Bell, nature campaigner at Friends of the Earth. Plus we find out about the threat of a jobless future from Martin Ford, who wrote 'Rise of the Robots', which has just been made the Financial Times Book of the Year. (Picture: Police in Paris.
