Assessing Abenomics: Japanese voters to focus on the economy

Has Abenomics been a hit or a miss? Japanese voters will have their say on the prime minister's economic vision when they head to the polls on October 22. Seijiro Takeshita, Dean and Professor of Management and Information at the University of Shizuoka, tells Kate Moody why they might be unimpressed by Abe's economic legacy.

Also in this programme:

And we take a look at Paris-based biotech firms hoping to change the face of medicine.
