From Alexis Colby to Catwoman - what makes a female baddie? Actress Claire Skinner on her new play 'Deathtrap' and her role in the hit TV show 'Outnumbered'. As part of our women and sport season we hear about one listener's passion for country dancing and we look at the family courts. Each year around 20,000 children have their futures decided by the family courts. We ask whether the lifting of reporting restrictions in April 2009 went far enough in opening the system up to public scrutiny? Presented by Jenni Murray.
