Presented by Jane Garvey. What do current guidelines on alcohol reveal about the way we view pregnant women? Sociologist Dr Ellie Lee and US Professor Janet Golden discuss the differing approaches to the issue in the UK and America. There are six young British women in the world top 250 compared with two young men, so when will they come good at Wimbledon? Annabel Croft discusses their chances. Food writer and cook Ghillie James transforms strawberries and other seasonal produce into jams, jellies and relishes. And with the US Food and Drug Administration Committee's rejection of Flibanserin, the latest drug with claims to improve sexual desire in women, why has women's sexual desire become so medicalised? Jane is joined by Sexual Psychologist Dr Petra Boynton and Dr Katherine Angel from Warwick University.
