Panorama's week that was - March 30 - April 5
You would have to have been on a different planet, or perhaps hiding in a tax haven somewhere, to have missed the G20 meeting last week in London. But perhaps those havens won't be available for much longer.
The G20, who collectively represent 85% of the world's economy, have agreed to sanction secretive tax havens in a bid to put a stop to this financial loophole.
That news has been welcomed by some of the many bloggers converging online on the epic meeting in the capital. Blogger Richard Murphy was able to get up close and personal to ask Gordon Brown a direct question on the issue. In his blog he points out that the G20 promise is just the beginning stage in tackling the issue.
Veteran campaigner Bono's One team have also been busy blogging. Committed to tackling extreme poverty they welcomed the tax haven news on their blog and even spoke to Richard Murphy in a YouTube video where he explains how he was shown a government letter to the OECD.
Speaking of which, the OECD last week published a blacklist of tax havens that have not co-operated. Lichtenstein was just one of the countries named. We were there in February for Panorama's Tax Me If You Can.
In the programme reporter John Sweeney followed the missing millions that the super rich have managed to squirrel away in tax havens whilst the rest of the world suffers a global economic crisis.
John Sweeney also made a short film explaining how tax havens works.
Another story making the news last week revealed that the Care Quality Commission, the government's new super health regulator, identified 21 trusts in England that are not doing enough in terms of cleanliness and decontamination.
Last April Panorama went inside a trust where 90 patients contracted and died from C Difficile.
The programme, How Clean Is Your Hospital?, conducted a survey to reveal how much each trust and health board across the UK is doing to protect patients.
The government's delayed rise in fuel tax hit motorists last week. The increase sees petrol prices increase by 2.12p per litre.
It's caused some upset as the success of anti-price rise websites and blogs have proved. Petrolprices.com has seen it's traffic rise after it posted a blog asking where the extra revenue raised would go.
In July Panorama asked Can We Afford to Fill Up? The programme looked at how high costs at the pump are affecting people all over Britain and questioned the government's green commitments.
A tragic picture was unveiled last week in the children's services in Doncaster. Documents handed to Panorama as part of an investigation revealed that there were concerns raised about the standard of child protection care in Doncaster back in 2005.
Serious problems were highlighted again in a report in 2007 which went so far as to raise concerns about the mental health of those working for the council.
Since the second report five children known to Doncaster social services have died in the space of seven months.
Alison Holt reported for Panorama on What Happened to Baby P? in November revealing the mistakes and missed opportunities that led to the death of a 17-month old toddler. Watch her BBC News report from Doncaster below.
