Brexit and the Cheese Industry

Dairy farming provides a microcosm of the challenges posed by Brexit to the UK economy. The BBC's Matthew Price visits British farms to get a flavour of the pickle that the cheese industry has landed in.

As the triggering of Article 50 looms, presenter Ed Butler also speaks to former top UK Foreign Office mandarin Simon Fraser about the potential complexity of negotiating new trade deals with countries across the globe, and why the UK may find itself trading on worse terms than EU rivals with the Commonwealth.

Plus the Financial Times' Lucy Kellaway on another of her pet peeves - corporate dress codes.
