Friday 21 May 2010

Presented by Jenni Murray.

Film maker Lorella Zanardi joins Jenni to talk about her campaign to see 'real' women on Italian television.

Ninety years ago this month, the magazine 'Time and Tide' was published for the first time. A ground-breaking political and cultural journal that was the mouthpiece of the feminist movement during the inter war years.

The number of multiple births is rising in this country and Professor Bill Ledger claims that the problem is being caused in part by the liberal use of cheap fertility drugs. He discusses his concerns with Jenni.

Can family dynamics be affected by education? Do those who haven't been to university feel left behind by offspring or siblings who have?

    Last summer Lorella Zanardo made a film about Italian television's obsession with scantily clad young women who no longer appear on screen with their 'real' faces, due to an excess of plastic surgery. Called Il Corpo Delle Donne or 'Women's Bodies', the film has become a word of mouth sensation in Italy and has been watched by over 1.3 million people.

  • Time and Tide

    Ninety years ago this month, the magazine Time and Tide was published for the first time. It was founded by the Welsh suffragette Lady Rhondda and was a ground-breaking journal not just for its political and cultural content but for the fact that it was the mouthpiece of the feminist movement during the inter war years. Professor Angela John, who is writing a biography of Lady Rhondda, joins Dr Catherine Clay, currently doing research into the history of Time and Tide, to discuss the journal and its remarkable founder.

    Can family dynamics be affected by education? Do those who haven't been to university feel left behind by offspring or siblings who have? Can you feel alienated by your education and feel the pressure of living in two worlds; dislocated from your roots because you have an education that your parents and/or siblings do not possess? Journalist Sheena Stephenson's education made her feel alienated from her family when she was younger and she joins family psychologist Dave Spellman to discuss the subject.
