Hurricane Florence: Evacuation underway
How people on the US East Coast are responding to reports of the approaching storm
More than a million Americans are being evacuated from their homes as hurricane Florence approaches the US East Coast. We hear from Rachel Lewis Hilburn, news director of the WHQR station in Wilmington, North Carolina, directly in the path of the storm. Economist Roger Bootle marks ten years since the Lehman Brothers collapse. Plus we hear about a revival of the traditional penny farthing bicycle, famous for its very large front wheel, and tiny rear wheel. Roger Hearing is joined by Duncan Clark, author and chairman of BDA China Limited who's in Beijing, and Tracey Samuelson of Marketplace in New York to discuss.
