Iceland: rising from the ashes (part 1)

Four years after the crash of its banking sector, Iceland is growing again. But as our reporters find out, the unresolved Icesave dispute continues to poison relations between Reykjavik and its European partners. We talk to Iceland's president who tells us why he remains opposed to EU membership, and we look into the role of women on this liberal island. And in this land of geysers and volcanoes, we explore the many possibilities of geothermal power.
