HMV, Salt in Food, Winter Tyres

55 minutes
First broadcast:
Friday 25 January 2013

DJ and actor Craig Charles asks if we've fallen out of love with music shops, and we look at how Hilco - the firm that's taken control of HMV in the UK - changed the fortunes of HMV Canada in 2009.

Industry targets for reducing salt levels in food haven't been met, so companies are being given more time.

And winter tyres are commonplace in other parts of Europe. Caz Graham finds out how they work we ask if UK drivers are slow on the uptake.

Presenter: Peter White
Producer: Joel Moors.
