Eurozone finance ministers have agreed on a deal to address the issue of failing banks. We find out how this long-awaited pact will be implemented. Plus, after the Federal Reserve's announcement yesterday - that it will begin to pull back its stimulus effort - we ask Economist, Irwin Stelzer, for his reaction. Also, we take a look at the controversial economic empowerment programme underway in Zimbabwe. And how a five year mission has been launched to map the Milky Way.
