On December 31, 2001, Richard reported live from Frankfurt on the adoption of the Euro as Europe's official currency.

Here's his take on the transition,
"You've got eight weeks when you can change your old money for the new money. They can both be used across Europe, so any viewers who may be traveling to Europe in the next few weeks who have got a bit of a few old drachmas in their sock box, bring them along, spend them in Greece. Dump the drachmas, get rid of the marks. Flog the francs. It's now all about the euro. "
