Creator of the luxury brand of bath oils and candles, Jo Malone talks to Winifred Robinson about how she grew her business from the kitchen table to a multi-million pound concern that she sold to Estee Lauder in 2006. In her new project - a television series on BBC1 called High Street Dreams - she's being a mentor to fledgling entrepreneurs; helping them to get their products sold in big-name high street stores.

We'll have the latest on the volcano fall-out: how the hoilday industry is coping with the uncertainty about the ash clouds; and whether or not BA are likely to cause more holiday flight disruption.

We're also finding out about off-the-shelf, new-build eco-homes; how the Lada hopes to do a Skoda and move to mainstream motoring; and art-collectives.
