Days after Cyclone Pam hit the pacific nation of Vanuatu, we assess the economic impact. And the UN's Special Envoy for Climate Change tells us the disaster is a sign the world's weather system has changed. Avoiding another scandal - HSBC closes bank accounts in the British Channel Islands. We have a report from the BBC's Tom Bateman. Also in the programme, 800 business leaders and politicians from Africa are meeting in the Swiss city of Geneva. Africa Business Report's Matthew Davies reports from the Africa CEO Forum. Plus, the final resting place of the wandering Knight? Archaeologists in Spain's capital, Madrid, think they have found the burial place of novelist Cervantes. We consider the potential for Don Quixote-inspired literary tourism.
