Greece Assumes EU Presidency

In what seems to many the ultimate irony, Greece - its economy in tatters - takes over the presidency of the European Union. FIFA's Secretary General says the Qatar World Cup will take place during the winter of 2022. But his organisation says that's not a done deal. We speak to FIFA Vice President, Jim Boyce, to find out exactly what's going on with the biggest event in the sporting calendar. An insider's perspective on the most secretive of nations, North Korea, with journalist and North Korea scholar, Jean Lee. And, economist Peter Morici joins us from Washington and Phil Mercer has the latest business news from Australia.
