Family life in Iceland 1st March 2010
What's happened since the economic crisis?

Since October 2008 Iceland has hit the international headlines. The three main Icelandic banks collapsed owing billions of pounds to foreign investors and the country became the first Western European nation to obtain an IMF loan since 1976. And this week, the country is in the news again with a referendum looming on whether to repay Britain and the Netherlands the money lost by foreign savers. But behind the dramatic headlines what is life like for the families living there? Jane talks to the Icelandic politician and economist, Sigridur Ingadottir and journalist Alda Sigmundsdottir.
