Naturalist Sir David Attenborough discussed environmental challenges facing the planet. Rob Buurman is director general of Recycling Netwerk, and suggests policy changes that might help tackle the problem of waste plastic around the world, and we get wider context from Harald Friedl of the Amsterdam-based social enterprise Circle Economy. Also in the programme, as Zimbabwe's economic crisis deepens, we hear from the country's finance minister Mthuli Ncube. We have a report from Pakistan on growing economic ties with China. Plus some Beefeaters, who guard the Tower of London, have gone on strike over changes to their pensions. We find out more from our reporter Catherine Stanczyszyn at the Tower.
