Talks over a transition period after Britain leaves the EU appear to stumble.

Talks over a transition period after Britain leaves the EU appear to stumble. Guntram Wolff of Brussels based think tank Bruegel tells us whether today's development signifies the potential for real trouble ahead. Also in the programme, the Winter Olympics are under way in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Jonathan Cheng of the Wall Street Journal brings us a flavour of the geopolitics on show in the opening ceremony. Plus we look back at the rest of the week's big business stories, with Caroline Gage from Bloomberg in New York, and Darren Lazarus of the Wall Street Journal in London.
