Jenni Murray presents: Marianne Faithfull sings live and talks about her new album, "Horses and High Heels" which is the first of her twenty-three albums she would describe as "happy". We examine calls for a dual vaccine against genital warts and strains of HPV which can lead to cervical cancer. Historian Lesley Hall talks about the life of the early feminist Stella Browne and following our recent diet special - we look at what happens after you've shed the weight. As well as the health benefits, for some people there can be some unexpected outcomes - such as divorce. And comfort eating can make way to brand-new addictions to shopping, drinking, even sex.
