Episode 700 of 861 episodes

Bids are in for Yahoo, and we ask what value the tech giant still offers. We hear from Jeffrey Rayport of Harvard Business School. Brexit campaigners say that if Britain leaves the EU, the rest of Europe will still trade with it. We hear from Michael Gove, Britain's Justice Secretary who's backing the leave campaign. But Professor John Van Reenen of the London School of Economics argues that the British economy would suffer in the event of a vote for Britain to leave. We have a special report from India where Shilpa Kannan has been finding out how technology is helping in the fight against corruption. Plus there's relief for commuters in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, as one of the largest bridges in East Africa opens. The BBC's Sammy Awami was at the opening.
