Longer lorries, the man who wants us to live without money, Caribbean tourism after Hurricane Sandy

Duration:
48 minutes
First broadcast:
Friday 09 November 2012

A new study suggests longer lorries could be good for the UK economy, carrying more light-weight goods in one go. They're used abroad so why not here? We put the pros and cons to the test.

Mark Boyle is the man who lived without money and wants more of us to do the same. He's on to tell us why.

And we report on the Caribbean tourist destinations trying to pick themselves up after Hurricane Sandy.

Presented by Peter White.

Producer: Jon Douglas.
