WBR: Greece wins reprieve from creditors - 24 Feb 15

February 24th, 2015

Episode 223 of 1091 episodes

Greece wins a reprieve from its creditors, but will compromises the ruling Syriza party has made cause it to lose face? Also in the programme, more special coverage from Bristol, Europe's 'Green Capital' for 2015. We find out about 'Warm Up Bristol', a drive to reduce energy consumption across the city, by aiming to improve home insulation in almost every street. Can Bristolians can really be persuaded to live in a more sustainable way? And we ask Karl Falkenberg, director general of environment at the European Commission whether titles like Green Capital herald lasting change, or are really just a series of gimmicks. Plus we get the reaction from Indian business, after the US said it will start monitoring pollution in the country.
