China has held its first ever World Internet Conference. We hear what the country famous for its 'Great Firewall' might want to achieve. Also, as oil giant Shell wins a case against the Indian government over tax, what kind of a precedent does it set for other multinationals operating there? Plus, more from the BBC's Lucy Burton in Zambia, and a look at the devastating effects the HIV virus continues to have on the southern African country. Also we talk to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation about how people can be encouraged to eat more healthily and what role international business should play.
