Ford and Jaguar Land Rover have announced cuts affecting thousands of workers in Europe.

Ford and Jaguar Land Rover have announced cuts affecting thousands of workers in Europe. Nick Gibbs of Automotive News Europe tells us what's behind the moves. We have a report from Venezuela, where President Nicolas Maduro is beginning a new six year term today. With growing numbers of people around the world giving up meat and dairy products for Veganuary, we look at the potential environmental impact of the move with beef and cereals farmer Richard Bower, and Ruth Valerio, global advocacy and influencing director at the Christian charity Tearfund. Plus on the 90th anniversary of the French comic book character Tintin, as a new live-action film featuring his adventures is announced, we find out about his enduring appeal, from Scottish graphic artist Simon Doyle who helps run a website about Tintin.
