29 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 03 February 2014

‘Staggering’ levels of corruption in the European Union undermines trust in democracy, a new report from the Home Affairs Commissioner reveals. From Transparency International – which compiles an index of the world’s most corrupt countries – Carl Dolan tells us why corruption at the top provides a breeding ground for organised crime. Plus, Africa’s biggest mining conference is overshadowed by major strike action that is crippling the country’s platinum production. Also, the Sochi Olympics have started, and we look at the controversy and economics of the event. Finally, Lucy Kellaway explores the prickly issue of age in the workplace. (Image: Getty)
