Episode 59 of 1091 episodes

The prime minister says sorry, but how might Spain's international reputation be struck? Also in the programme, we have a report on how Luxembourg came to be a global centre for business and finance, and ask Nicolas Mackel, who heads up the government agency which develops the country's financial sector whether it is a tax haven for multinational corporations. Plus we talk to cheesemakers in Normandy about why they smell trouble ahead. And, tweet dreams, we talk to Dan Stowell, the developer of a mobile phone app aiming to identify birds through their song.
