From the BBC World Service: Adidas is counting the cost of terminating its partnership with Kanye West, announcing the company could be forced to write off $500 million worth of inventory of his famous brand of Yeezy sneakers. They parted ways with the musician last year due to anti-Semitic comments West made on social media — analyst Russ Mould speaks to us about the impact on the German sportswear giant. Plus we're in the Philippines as the government looks to ban their most polluting form of public transport - the Jeepney. And, we celebrate International Women's Day with some extraordinary achievers.
