Saudi women bankers

Lesley Curwen talks to Dr Nahed Taher from Saudi Arabia, who is the first woman to create and head a Middle Eastern bank, Gulf One Investment Bank.

Dr Taher talks about the early challenge of being the only woman in a bank with 4,000 employees, and how she hopes for a future where Saudi women are permitted to drive cars.

Plus, the cost of staging a Rugby World Cup. Lesley talks to Sean Fitzpatrick, legendary former Captain of the All Blacks, and to New Zealand's Foreign Minister Murray McCully, about whether the 2011 Cup may be the last one the country can afford to host.

And our regular commentator, Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times, weighs up whether big bosses should send a personal answer to customer complaints.
