  • Natascha Kampusch

    In February 1998 the ten-year-old Austrian schoolgirl Natascha Kampusch was abducted by a stranger. Cut off from the outside world, she was imprisoned by Wolfgang Priklopil in a hermetically sealed dungeon for eight-and-a-half years until she finally managed to escape. In her book ‘3096 Days’ she recounts her story and her struggle to move on with her life.

    '3096 Days' by Natascha Kampusch is published by Penguin Books

  • Yvonne Chaka Chaka

    Yvonne Chaka Chaka

    The South African superstar Yvonne Chaka Chaka is known as the 'Princess of Africa'. She had a tough childhood in a Soweto township but showed her mettle at an early age when she was the first black child to appear on South African TV at the height of Apartheid. Her music career spans over 25 years and her hit songs sustained Nelson Mandela in prison. Recently Yvonne travelled across Africa to document the progress women have made in fighting malaria. The film of this journey: "The Motherland Tour – A Journey of African Women" will be shown at the Soho Hotel in London on 14 September before travelling on to the UN Millennium Development Goal summit later this month.

  • Sexual Health in the over 45s

    We’re constantly bombarded with adverts targeted at young people warning them of the risks of unsafe sex. But the Family Planning Association has just begun the first campaign aimed at older generations – as new figures show there has been an increase of almost 50% in sexually transmitted infections contracted by people aged over 45 in the past ten years. Jane talks to the Chief Executive of the Family Planning Association, Julie Bentley, as well as Agony Aunt Diedre Sanders about getting the message across.
