What's it like being Facebook's policeman?

This week, Adrian sits down for an in-depth chat with Helen Dixon, Europe's most powerful data protection commissioner.

They talk about Facebook, her approach and what exactly it takes for her office to kick off a probe.

Helen has some surprising revelations, such as her office's recent look at whether Facebook is secretly recording us through our phones (and what they found).

Adrian also asks Helen whether GDPR is causing  endless pop-ups on websites that get ignored and if it has helped the big tech firms while hurting small players and startups.

And theres lots more, from CCTV to what the office is planning in the future.
