With Jenni Murray. Mothers' and babies' lives are being put in danger by the UK's over-stretched and under-resourced maternity services. So are super units the way forward? Jenni explores the issues. Ursula Sladec has just won the prestigious Goldman Environmental Prize. She tells Jenni how her quest to limit Germany's dependence on nuclear power ended up with her, and her like-minded neighbours, owning the local electricity supply. Back in 1971, the feminist artist Margaret Harrison famously depicted Hugh Hefner as a bunny girl. She joins Jenni to discuss a new retrospective of her work. Also, the growing outdoor sport of Parkour and the pleasures of the European Picture Book Collection.
