                New Wales Office minister Lord Bourne talks to Wales@work about promoting tourism and the Welsh economy - and he tells Brian cutting VAT on tourism is a "non-runner". Brian also speaks to the US ambassador about the controversial TTIP trade deal being negotiated between America and Europe. Our business of the week is Complete Background Screening, which is fast developing from its base in the former mining village of Ynysybwl. Brian then talks to another growing company about how it's coped with rapid expansion. The founder of our business of the week was inspired to start her company by a news report, so Brian and guests discuss ways of developing that killer idea - and whether anyone can be creative.
