Italy's New PM and Can Blogging Pay?

55 minutes
First broadcast:
Thursday 25 April 2013

Italy is finally to get a government, led by Prime Minister Enrico Letta. We'll be hearing why they can't solve their fiscal crisis without one.

We're joined throughout the programme by the man many regard as the godfather of bloggers, The Dish's Andrew Sullivan. We ask how do you make money from a blog, when they're so much free stuff elsewhere?

Also in the programme, one of most prominent women in business, Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg talks to the BBC.

And is it the end of Australia's golden age of cinema as a strong currency makes it a more expensive place to make movies? We have a report from down under.

It's the time of year for spring-cleaning but who spring-cleans space? We discuss the difficulty and cost of cleaning up space trash, whizzing round the world at 28,000 miles a hour.

We're also joined by business journalist Jyoti Malhotra in Delhi.
