Presented by Jenni Murray: The British Psychological Society has lent its support for a review of the way medication is used to treat children with behavioural problems. Dame Beryl Bainbridge is being honoured by organisers of the Man Booker Prize in a special award called The Man Booker Best of Beryl. The role of women in the Mexican Revolution has been largely overlooked but just how significant was their part in social and political change during the revolution and its aftermath. And we meet Carlene Firmin who has been honoured for her work to combat the impact of gang violence on girls.
