Greek debt drama: Is Grexit back on the table?

It's a word that hasn't been heard for a while in Athens, but the spectre of a Grexit, or Greece leaving the eurozone, has been raised again. A leaked memo from the International Monetary Fund says the country's debt could become "explosive" unless its EU creditors give Greece substantial help. The IMF is still undecided about its role in a third bailout. If it pulls out, the whole funding plan could collapse.

Also in this programme, we see how Donald Trump's moves to restrict immigration have provoked outrage from many of America's biggest companies.
