With Jane Garvey. We examine a new law which comes into effect next month in France which will ban Muslim women from wearing the Niqab, or the full face veil in any public place. The author Jean Auel talks about the long awaited instalment in her "Clan of the Cave Bear" series. This week the film "Oranges and Sunshine" opens in London and tells the story of what happened to the thousands of British children sent for a "better life" to countries like Canada and Australia by the Child Migrant Trust. We talk to Margaret Humphreys, a social worker from Nottingham, who was instrumental in uncovering what had happened. And we look at the role of women in the aesthetic movement in nineteenth century Britain.
