Raunch culture: Is there too much sex in pop music? Mike Stock, of 80s pop production outfit Stock, Aitken & Waterman, claims pop music has become so sexualized that mothers don't want to let young children watch it any more. Karate Kid is currently on at cinemas across the country, re-telling the tale of a 12-year-old American boy who masters the art of Karate under the strict supervision of a Master in Beijing. What role can the discipline and rigour often found in sport and music offer children and what lessons can it teach us for later life? The Fawcett Society has filed papers with the High Court seeking a Judicial Review of the Government's emergency budget. The women's rights group believes that the Coalition Government should have assessed whether its budget proposals would increase or reduce inequality between the genders.
And, we hear a report about one woman's return to Afghanistan.
Presented by Jane Garvey.
