Fish, France and Forgeries

Listen in pop-out player

Some Americans on the Pacific Coast are worried that radiation-contaminated water from the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan is tainting fish being sold in local markets. Scientists, though, say they need not worry. Also, why some Boston area students are so angry with the French Consulate, and why so many French technical innovators are heading to California’s Silicon Valley. We meet one of the world’s top legal counterfeiters of precious gems. And, we find out about the trousers worn by Norway’s National Curling team that are generating so much attention.
