'Seal Friendly' salmon, football prices and the staff sacked because of bad reviews online

55 minutes
First broadcast:
Thursday 18 October 2012

461 seals were shot last year in rivers, lochs and at fish farms to protect stocks of fish in Scotland. We investigate the steps being taken to avoid such deaths and hear why even companies whose Scottish salmon is endorsed by the RSPCA say they can't yet guarantee not to shoot seals.

Revealed: the cheapest - and most expensive - places to watch league football. We have the results of one of the biggest surveys ever carried out into the cost of a day at the footy.

And how bad reviews online are leading to some staff getting the sack.

Presenter: Winifred Robinson
Producer: Jon Douglas.
