with Ben Johnson

Marketplace Tech for Monday, July 14 2014

PLus, Jonathan Zittrain, Professor of Law at Harvard and co-founder of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, talks about the similarities between Facebook’s emotional manipulation study and the EU ruling on the right to be forgotten on Google.

But later this year, racing fans will be presented with an alternative, when the Formula E world championship - designed exclusively for electric cars - is launched. The cars recently took to the track for the first time, at the Donington Park circuit in Britain. The BBC's - Theo Leggett - a confirmed petrol head - went along to find out more.
