October 12,2021

A report by MPs says the UK’s early response to Covid-19 was one of the country’s worst public health failures. Professor Sir John Bell joins Adam and James to look back on the momentous decisions made in March 2020.

As the financial fallout from the pandemic continues, the number of job vacancies in the UK has hit a record 1.1million. Why aren’t those jobs filled – and what does it mean for the economy? Bloomberg’s Lizzy Burden explains.

And what is the EU doing to cut emissions in the run-up to the COP climate summit? Adam reunites with the European Commission Vice-President Frans Timmermans to find out.

Today’s Newscast was made by Danny Wittenberg with producers Georgia Coan and Alix Pickles. The studio director was Emma Crowe and the assistant editor was Alison Gee. The editor is Jonathan Aspinwall.
