As one of the world's richest men, the Microsoft founder Bill Gates has more than acknowledged his responsibility to help other people financially.

On Radio 4's Desert Island Discs on Sunday, Gates said he had decided not to leave his fortune to his children "so that they can have their own careers and make their own way".

He added:
