The owner of the Rana Plaza factory complex has been charged with murder. We hear from the BBC's Akbar Hossein in Bangladesh, and discuss the issues with Sam Mayer, from the campaign group "Labour Behind the Label", which has been campaigning on behalf of Bangladeshi garment workers. Also in the programme, the tale of the $200,000 Apple 1 computer, which was thrown away - and recovered by garbage men.
