Would you like a weather forecast like Radio 4's PM prog?

Victoria Derbyshire | 08:52 UK time, Friday, 16 October 2009

Weather mapOur colleagues at PM have introduced a new style of weather forecast. The reason? A number of their listeners found they couldn't remember the details of the conventional forecast. Have a look at Eddie Mair's blog. John Hammond from the Met Office is going to try it out today just before 10.30.

Also on today's programme - we hope to speak to the Schools Secretary Ed Balls, to react to the huge review of primary school education which suggests that children shouldn't begin formal lessons until they are 6. Plus the 17 year old British tennis star who's about to turn professional, Heather Watson.

And I'll speak to the 24 year old woman who's about to get married - but before she does she's going to have an operation to be sterilised. Can you know at such a young age that you really don't want children later in life?
