Jane Garvey presents. Anna Nicole Smith was the waitress who became a Playboy pin-up and octogenarian billionaire's wife, before dying penniless at 39. Is her story which has now been turned into an opera a modern day morality tale? We talk to Dame Fiona Reynolds, head of the National Trust about plans to sell off the nation's forests. Many people report that having a good cry makes them feel better. But for some shedding a tear is so hard. The comedian Jo Brand talks about her new documentary, 'For crying out loud', she goes in search of the secrets behind the tears, and why it appears we are all crying in public now. And Jane talks to two Michelin-starred chefs: Angela Hartnett, chef-patron of Murano and the York and Albany, both in London; and to Skye Gyngell, who's just won her first star as head chef of Petersham Nurseries.
