This program is the last in the current series. We’ll be discussing how a regulator with a mountain of data should communicate it to worried couples seeking IVF treatment. We’ll return to the maths of the credit crunch, talk to Martin Weale about what a recession actually is – and discover the link between Guiness and statistical signifiance.
