All that glitters: Gold prices decline over economic optimism

Has the shine gone off gold? Prices have dipped in recent weeks - so what does that mean for gold miners? Stephen Carroll talks to Metallon chairman Mzi Khumalo.

Also in the programme:

  • We focus on the story of PetroChina's spectacular fall from stock market grace. Having lost 80 percent of its value, it now represents the biggest stock collapse in history.
     
  • And we look at the return of a craze from the 1990s that many thought was long dead. The Tamagotchi is back on sale in France, and it's become a collector's item for old and new fans of the digital pets.
