More Strikes Ahead of Brazil World Cup

55 minutes
First broadcast:
Thursday 12 June 2014

More strikes are planned ahead of the Brazil World Cup. We hear about President Dilma Rousseff's strained relationship with FIFA. Also, we investigate a birth control device that thousands of women think causes serious health problems. We hear from Erin Brockovich who is endorsing a campaign to get Essure banned, and talk to the German drug firm Bayer, which makes the product. Plus, taxi drivers in several European capitals are trying to bring traffic to a halt, in a protest against the growing popularity of the rival cab hailing app, Uber. We have a report on the disappointment of technology in education, and we look at why craft beer is taking off in India. Our special guests this week is Julian Stubbs, CEO of Up There, Everywhere, a web based marketing and recruiting site, and Adriene Hill, a reporter from US show Marketplace.
