It's not easy being green: Making European farming more sustainable (part 2)

Description

It's not easy being green... or is it? In this out-and-about edition of Talking Europe, we're looking at how well EU countries have been doing on one of the major contributors to carbon emissions: farming. In this part of the show, we're in Alsace, on the French side of the Franco-German border. While Germany is a big agricultural player in Europe, France is even bigger: almost half of its land is given over to farming and France is the number one recipient of EU farm subsidies.

  • 'Thank you and goodbye': Clock starts on Brexit negotiations (part 2)

    To those who still secretly wish Britain won't leave the EU, surely this is the "get over it" moment. To those who are cheering, be careful what you wish for. The British prime minister is now going to have to decide how hard a bargain she wants to drive. Although court rulings have forced Theresa May to commit to showing her hand to lawmakers, it's still anyone's guess how the UK government will get the EU to accept closed borders and access to the continent's single market.
