Euro wobbles

18 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 27 February 2013

With Portugal and Spain conceding they've missed their deficit targets and Italy in political deadlock, is this a crossroads in the crisis? We hear from Portugal's Economy Minister, Dr Alvaro Santos Pereira and we speak to Kathleen Brooks, the Research Director of Forex.com, an online currency broker, about the wider implications for the eurozone.

Also in the programme, the BBC's Rory Cellan-Jones reports from the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona - there's comment on the spread of applications for mobile phone technology into healthcare and cars, as well as commentary from Ben Wood of CCS Insight and Carolina Milanesi of the tech consultancy, Gartner.

And Jacob Ward of Popular Science Magazine reflects on why the grounding of Boeing's Dreamliner aircraft, has also grounded the dreams of air passengers seeking a decent flight's rest.
