India forges ahead with nuclear power

As India plans to finish a nuclear power plant which it started twenty-five years ago, we'll be looking at why its taken so long to complete, and what those for and against have to say about the project. A grande malaise surrounds France's socialist president, Francois Hollande. And we take a trip to an Irish meat plant and a construction site to find out how small businesses are faring, as the government there promises an end is in sight to the straitjacket of the bailout programme. And would you drink a bottle of whisky that's been sloshing around in the Atlantic since 1941? As two bottles from the famous Whisky Galore! shipwreck turn up at auction, we take a look at why the auction price is still cause for cheer.
