Three remarkable stories in tonight's Inside Out
I usually write about one or other of the three stories we cover most weeks and of course invite your comments.
This week I've written a separate blog entry on each of them and I hope you'll find the time to read all three. If you missed the show you can catch up on BBC iPlayer.
