China on Track to Create an African Railway

The Chinese are investing in Africa's railways, with a vision to create a network connecting seven East-African countries. It is a much-needed infrastructure development, but not everyone is convinced by China's involvement. Plus, the European Union consider new economic sanctions against Russia, ahead of next week's presidential election in Ukraine. Also, the pop musician and UK national treasure, Gary Barlow, is in hot water over tax-dodging. And, our regular commentator Lucy Kellaway explores how work expands to fill the amount of time you've got to do it.
