Militants fight for Iraqi hydroelectric dam

29 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 23 June 2014

As Sunni militants march on in Iraq, we assess the threat to the country's power supply as a major hydroelectric dam is threatened. Also General Electric seal a deal to buy the energy business of French industrial giant Alstom - but is it really a victory for economic nationalism? Harley Davidson is going green - with the launch of all-electric motorbike. And as the UK Top 40 chart starts taking account of streamed songs in how it calculates the countdown, we ask whether there's a big difference between the type of music bought, downloaded or streamed. Plus Lucy Kellaway on the link between pay and performance at work.
