The Netherlands, a forward-looking society (part 2)

In this second part of the show we focus on social issues. The Netherlands is often seen as one of the most liberal countries in the world. On the legalisation of soft drugs, prostitution or abortion, it has led the way. We bring you a report on a proposed new law which would broaden the right to euthanasia. We also report on Dutch electric trains which run on wind power. Finally, we visit the European Space Agency in The Hague with MEP Cora Van Nieuwenhuizen.
