As these once most bitter of enemies agree to establish closer relationship, we assess the economic impact. We talk to John Kavulich, Senior Policy Advisor at the U.S. Cuba Trade and Economic Council in New York, and Pedro Feyre, an expert in Cuban-American legal relations at Columbia Law School. Plus, frantic buying in the shops and a rush to withdraw cash from banks. We hear the latest on Russia's currency crisis. Also in the programme, crash tests on seven popular Indian car models found them to be unsafe. How much will it cost to make them safer? And finally, they're renowned as one of nature's biggest aphrodisiacs. But we'll hear how oysters are facing a distinctly unromantic threat: Herpes.
