Iraq's Oil Future in Doubt?

As more towns and checkpoints fall under insurgent control, our economics correspondent Andrew Walker assesses how much of a risk the fighting in Iraq poses for the global economy? When do global oil price rises become a cause for concern? And we speak to David Horgan, director of Petrel Resources, a small-scale independent oil producer based in Dublin, about his interests within the country and how he now sees the prospects for Iraq.

Also in the programme, we hear a report from New York about a new initiative aimed at getting girls from ethnic minorities more involved in computer coding. And, Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times reflects on whether money is really what motivates most of us when we are at work.
