New IMF boss

Lesley Curwen reports from Washington on reaction to Christine Lagarde's selection as the new boss of the IMF. Veteran commentator James Srodes asks if her new job is like being captain of the Titanic?

And Brazilian IMF Director, Paulo Nogueira Batista, criticises the selection process as "unbalanced".

Away from Washington Justin Rowlatt takes us on a journey to strike-bound Athens, negotiating long queues for transport and dodging the tear gas.
