Six Months After Rana Plaza in Bangladesh

Listen in pop-out player

Six months after the Rana Plaza disaster, we are in Bangladesh asking what has changed? And we talk to Jeffrey Krilla, president of the Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety - one of two main organisations which has joined global clothing brands to scrutinise working conditions with the aim of making the huge Bangladeshi clothing industry safer.

From boom to bust in Detroit - is there a future in bankruptcy for the Motor City? And, we look at towns which have had their day and those that have been able to bounce back, from China to the US.

Plus - what it is like to be a 'coaster-head', chasing the thrill of rollercoasters around the world.
