Britain has been described several times on the radio as the world's
5th biggest economy.
What the first four?
US, Japan, Germany... and who?

Yes, according to the New York Times (January 2006) and based upon
figures submitted by China:-

"The Chinese statistics, showing a national economic output of $2.26
trillion, sent China soaring past France, Britain and Italy to become
the world's fourth-largest economy, after the United States, Japan and
Germany."

How far off is India?
Aren't they set to exceed China's population in the "near" future?
India still have quite a way to go:

Rank Country GDP (millions of USD)

5 United Kingdom 2,201,473
12 India 775,410
