October 16th, 2014

Episode 44 of 861 episodes

Concern about financial stability in Greece has added to the downward pressure on global stock markets. We hear from Athens and take an in-depth look at the latest from the financial markets with our regular commentator Brenda Kelly of IG Markets. Plus, the BBC's Duncan Bartlett examines the impact of the ebola crisis on food and farming. Also on the programme, plastic bags are banned in Burkina Faso and California. We ask if this spells the beginning of the end for plastics.
