Israel and France

Pascale Harter presents stories from foreign correspondents around the globe. In this edition - how can people living in an ultra-traditional society - where even Facebook is frowned upon - do business in the high-tech world? Linda Pressly has been meeting women from Israel's Haredi community who manage to stay true to their values while building an online business.

Plus, it's the season of discontent in Paris. Winter has arrived, and so have more gloomy economic figures. President Francois Hollande has particular cause to be a bit down; his approval ratings have plummeted. Perhaps he'll be cheering himself up with chocolate. And where better to indulge than the French capital, host of the chocolate industry's most important trade fair? Joanna Robertson has been touring the sweet shops of Paris.
