Presented by Jane Garvey. This year marks fifty years since Breakfast at Tiffany's was filmed. Jane is joined by Sarah Gristwood to discuss its enduring appeal. Last week we devoted a special programme to re-launching yourself in midlife. Today we consider the joys and pitfalls of searching for the good life abroad. Lynne Featherstone, the Equalities Minister has suggested that children would benefit from seeing 'Made in Dagenham'. So how is the struggle for women's equality taught in schools? And is it ok to put your children on a diet?
