A bank putting ethics before profits?

Britain's Barclays Bank tries to rebrand in a softer light after the financial crisis. It's cutting 3,700 jobs and intends to slim down its investment banking operations. We ask whether the bank's actions can help change the much-criticised current banking culture. Also how to end the 'lawlessness' of our oceans - we speak to the head of a new UN-backed body tasked with working out how to protect future fish stocks. We also speak to a man dubbed the Bill Gates of Ghana - tech entrepreneur Herman Chinery-Hesse - and would you pay more than $9000 for a mobile phone?
