President Putin has accused the British government of foolishness for demanding the extradition of a Russian suspect in the murder of former KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko.

Six months after Litvinenko's agonising death by radiation poisoning the chances of a trial are looking slim. Stephen Sackur talks to his widow, Marina and his close friend, Alex Goldfarb.

Will they ever find out who killed Alexander Litvinenko, or will the truth get buried amidst a diplomatic row?
