With Jane Garvey. The legendary American jazz singer Dee Dee Bridgewater is rare amongst artistes - she's won both a Tony and a Grammy for her work. She joins Jane to talk about how her love of Billie Holiday has framed her life. ChildLine has reported a 32% rise in calls to its service from those in care, so are these vulnerable children being let down? As part of our Women in Business series, Jane discusses the importance of delegation. And Dr Francesca Stavrakopoulou, a Biblical scholar from the University of Exeter, talks about her BBC 2 television series, 'The Bible's Buried Secrets'.
