    Paris 2024: The fashion Olympics

    Paris 2024: The fashion Olympics

    We’re used to fashion giants like adidas and Nike designing athlete uniforms for the Olympics and Paralympics.
    This year however, it’s likely we’ll see smaller labels on the podium.
    In this programme we hear from the diverse list of designers and learn why the fashion industry is so keen to work with sports stars.

    Paris 2024: The Grand Paris Express

    Paris 2024: The Grand Paris Express

    People arriving at Paris’s Orly Airport for the 2024 Olympic games will be able to take an underground train straight to Saint-Denis where most of the Olympic action is taking place.
    It's thanks to a line extension that opened on June 24. And that is just the ‘hors d’oeuvre’. The Grand Paris Express is a metro expansion on a massive scale whose aim is to transform the city from a normal-sized European capital to a metropolis the size of London.
    What could it do for the Parisian, and French, economies?

    Nigeria’s drive to sell more locally-made cars

    Nigeria’s drive to sell more locally-made cars

    For decades, Nigeria has struggled to grow its domestic automotive industry while vehicles made by manufacturers from Japan, Korea, Europe and the US have dominated. But critics say many of those cars are not suitable for Nigeria’s roads.
    Lately, there has been a surge of “made in Nigeria” brands, of vehicles manufactured and assembled locally, which have been designed with the country’s challenging road conditions in mind.
    But as Nigerians are gearing up to the idea of replacing their trusted foreign brands with local alternatives, China has introduced a range of vehicles tailored to the Nigerian market - but cheaper.

    Are shoppers turning against self-checkouts?

    Are shoppers turning against self-checkouts?

    Love them or loathe them, retailers across the world are installing more automated checkouts, as they aim to reduce staff costs.
    But the loss of personal service and the unreliable technology has prompted complaints from customers.
    And supermarkets are also facing a significant increase in theft from self-scan checkouts.
    We're in Ireland, where shops only installed the technology in recent years. Plus we hear from experts in Australia, China, the UK and United States.

    The price of a F1 Grand Prix

    We head to Montreal, host city of the Canadian F1 Grand Prix.
    It's the country's largest tourist event, with an estimated 345,000 fans attending in 2023.
    And the sport is growing in popularity, thanks in part to the Netflix series, Drive to Survive.
    So how valuable is a Grand Prix to a country's economy? And which other cities are trying to get in on the action?
