Russia Annexes Crimea

As jubilant Russians celebrate the annexation of Crimea, we hear why Bill Browder, once one of the biggest foreign investors in Russia, thinks sanctions don't go far enough.

As jubilant Russians celebrate the annexation of Crimea, we hear why Bill Browder, co-founder of Hermitage Capital Management, once one of the biggest foreign investors in Russia, thinks US and EU sanctions don't go far enough. Sergei Khrushchev - son of former Soviet premiere Nikita - gives us his perspective on events in the Crimea. The BBC's chief business correspondent Linda Yueh goes boating on the Bosphorus to find out if there's trouble ahead for Turkey.

Also in the programme: Should publishers and toy makers stop marketing their wares to specific genders? Or should everything they sell be suitable for either a boy or a girl? Doubtless this will have you shouting at the radio! Presenter Manuela Saragosa is joined by David Kuo in the BBC's Singapore bureau.
