Leaving behind the debt dramas of Europe, Counting the Cost focuses on Nigeria - a country with economic wealth and potential.

How can this African country harness its huge economic potential? What is behind the country's potential banking crisis? How can the Nigerian government try to avert its banking problems?

And what does Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Nigeria's new finance minister, who is already well-established on a global platform as the managing director of the World Bank, think of the country's future?

We also take a look at shale gas, the country's new energy alternative, and Nigeria's considerable agricultural potential.

  

Counting the Cost can be seen each week at the following times GMT: Friday: 2230; Saturday: 0930; Sunday: 0330; Monday: 1630.
