From rising prices and strikes to pension reform and new travel rules, we take a look at what is on the cards for the year ahead in France.

And we debate how likely it is that president Emmanuel Macron will call fresh elections to try and solve the parliamentary deadlock.

And we're also talking about what there is to look forward to next year, from expanding cycle routes and public holidays to the 2023 rugby world cup.
