Discounter supermarkets, Pension battles, Mindfulness, Typewriters

What's it like being the boss of Lidl? Also why old-fashioned typewriters are making a comeback, finding a plaster in your coleslaw and is mindfulness in schools a good thing?

We talk to the man who used to run Lidl in the UK and ask him where the discounters go next.
