China's phenomenal export machine has hit a snag on fears of a US trade war. In just a minute, Ed will discuss all three stories and more with Jeremy Stretch, Head of G10 FX Strategy at CIBC. On the companies side of things, ITV's share price has been boosted by a positive note from goldman Sachs. Shares in pub group, Mitchells and Butler, are also on the up after a positive first quarter. Ed will be getting comment from Craig Erlam at OANDa in about 15 minutes. In politics, leading Blairite Tristram Hunt has said he's going to stand down from Parliament. Ed will speak to John Rentoul from the independent for his take. And finally, Fiat is the latest manufacturer to face emissions cheating allegations. Industry expert, professor David Bailey, will explain what this means for the car industry. All that and more on today's edition of the Share Radio News Hour.

The Share Radio Travel Guide: What are eco-friendly holidays? Are they just a gimmick?
The Share Radio Travel Guide, with travel journalist and author Sarah Tucker. This week, we delve into the world's most extreme adventures and there's an insider's guide to Melbourne with Patricia Scales, a guide from Tours By Locals. Those concerned about the environment don't have to be an eco-warrior or a world leader to join the fight to preserve the environment. Simply giving time and/or money and making small, simple lifestyle changes can help protect the planet. One woman who's travelled far and wide and understands the importance of genuinely giving back is Fiona Jeffery, the CEO of Just a Drop - a global, charitable organization helping to provide clean water and sanitation in the poor countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America - and previous head of the World Travel Market.
