0320050418Gavin Esler and guests look behind the headlines to the international issues and cultures which shape the world.

As the collapse of MG Rover signifies the last nail in the coffin of the British car industry, Four Corners asks: is out-sourcing a necessary evil in a globalised world?

Three newly discovered slime-mold beetles have been named after President Bush and his right-hand men: is this a compliment?

And is Australia trying to woo its way into Asian politics and have a stronger voice there than America? Four Corners examines why Prime Minister John Howard is making a u-turn in his regional relationships.
