Jenni Murray presents. Insistent rumours are growing in sections of the French press that Carla Bruni is pregnant. Might being a new dad provide Sarkozy with a much-needed 'paternity bounce' in his campaign to become French president again next spring? The women of Liverpool have been criticised recently for their looks at Aintree - the fake tan, the amount of flesh on display. Is such criticism justified? It's every parent's worry when teenagers pass their driving test and go solo behind the wheel. So how can parents survive this nerve-wracking time? And Irish Children's Laureate, Siobhan Parkinson, talks to Jenni about her new book, Bruised.
