18 January 2009

Episode 4

31 minutes

In the fourth edition of The Monocle Weekly we speak to Mexican ambassador to the United States, Arturo Sarukhan, and find out what was on the agenda at president-elect Barack Obama's first and only pre-inauguration meeting with a foreign president, Mexico's Felipe Calderón. Next up, we are joined in the studio by security consultant Ben Soames, fresh off the boat from a mission in the Gulf of Aden protecting freight carriers from hi-tech pirates. Lastly, aviation expert Andreas Spaeth discusses what chances Alitalia has of reinventing itself under the wings of its new partnership with Air France-KLM. As always, The Monocle Weekly is rounded off with this week's film and music picks from culture editor Robert Bound.
