Presented by Jenni Murray. Kirstie Allsopp made her name presenting Location Location Location. She's now turned her attention to interiors and joins Jenni to talk about home crafts. Agnes Gereb is a Hungarian midwife who was arrested earlier this month for delivering a baby away from a hospital. We discuss the situation in Hungary where it is illegal to have an assisted home birth. The Countess Beatriz de Dia was one of a group of women troubadours who lived in the South of France in the twelfth century. We'll be imagining her life through readings and song. And, should primary school children be given homework? George Muirhead, the head of a primary school in Plymouth says definitely yes, Kirstie Allsopp says emphatically no. Hear the debate.
