Sep 27: The maths clue to Merkel's mind

What makes the world's most powerful woman tick? Is she for radical economic reform or a softly softly social consenus? Chancellor Angela Merkel, re-elected for another four years, previously headed a grand coalition of left and right, a tricky task involving compromises to keep the government together. Some Germans feel this has clouded what they understand Ms Merkel stands for. Chris Bryant, Berlin correspondent, travels to Angela Merkel's home town of Templin to learn what people who know her well remember about her attitudes and beliefs.
