More or Less a Recession?
Friday, 11 November
Is the UK economy headed for its longest ever recession? Tim Harford, BBC presenter and “Undercover Economist”, unscrambles the latest figures, explains what happens when the economy starts to shrink, and chats to Adam about his uni lessons with former PM Liz Truss.
Also, as Just Stop Oil suspend their protests that have parked traffic on the M25, we ask what makes an effective protest with Helen Pankhurst, great-granddaughter of suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst, and Georgia Catt, whose latest podcast explores the world of radical environmentalists.
Today’s Newscast was made by Danny Wittenberg with Miranda Slade, Paige Neal-Holder and Madeleine Drury. The technical producer was Ben Andrews. The series producer is Tim Walklate.
