Weekend Woman's Hour

Highlights of this week's Woman's Hour programmes with Jane Garvey.

War widow Christina Schmid talks about rebuilding her life; Celia Imrie on stepping from Cranford on to the stage; why help is needed for people who survive cancer; the working-class family and what politicians could do for it; what women in 1950s films tell us about how society was changing; and stop before you throw out your old furniture - could it have arrived at the cutting edge of retro?
