Follows a team from the World Bank as it gets feedback from the Belarus business community on its assistance strategy. Instead of pumping money into the country's central government to help deal with the severe and widespread radioactive contamination it suffered as a result of fallout from the Chernobyl power station disaster of 1986 and boost the economy, the Bank prefers to consult with the fledgling private sector. Also visits one of the few parts of Belarus to have escaped contamination: the Belovezhskaya National Park - the last habitat of the European bison and the country's pride and joy.
