Fighting the vultures

La Libertad - the Liberty - is a beautiful three masted sailing frigate owned by the Argentine navy. But, thanks to an American vulture fund, it is now anything but free - La Libertad has been impounded in a Ghanaian port. Justin Rowlatt asks the former President of the Argentine Central Bank, Mario Blejer, what it will mean for Argentina and the world if the country loses its battle with a so-called "vulture fund".

And, sexuality in the City. We speak to two of the most senior gay people in the business world about whether sexual orientation still matters at work: Lord Browne, the former CEO of BP, and Ashley Steel, vice chair of the vast professional services company KPMG.
