The UK's first try before you buy shop

Do parking charges help or hinder high street trade? Westminster Council in London plans to introduce charges on Sundays and weekday evenings, but other councils are dropping theirs to encourage trade. Businesswoman and potter Emma Bridgewater joins us to talk about her experiences of running a business in areas with and without charges.

More than 95 percent of primary school children spend at least two hours a week doing PE, according to government figures. But You and Yours has found out that the reality is rather different.

And 'try - vertising'. We hear about the shop that lets people take home five items a month to try - so long as they complete a questionnaire on each product, and pay a small annual fee. Will it catch on or is it a marketing gimmick?
