Poland: 25 Years of a Free Market

Listen in pop-out player

What have 25 years of a free market economy achieved in Europe's former communist economies?

Tanya Beckett is in Poland where the story is one of remarkable economic growth as it diversified from traditional, heavy industries like ship building into new, modern globalised sectors. She visits a car factory where state of the art technology is driving the pace of change. Plus we hear from the country's youth on their hopes for the future. And she interviews one of the architects of Poland's 1989 revolution, shipworker Lech Walesa.
