Life in the freezer, contact after adoption, breast implants & Mrs Leather's carols
Presented by Jenni Murray. Thousands of women in France are being ordered to have defective breast implants removed after a number of cancer deaths were linked to them. But what is our attitude to women whose health is affected when cosmetic breast surgery goes wrong? A judge recently ruled that a mother should stop sending letters and cards to her daughter because her adoptive parents fear it will lead to a secret relationship. But who decides whether adopted children should be allowed to maintain contact with their birth parents? The Arctic regions are among the most hostile on earth, and only the most hardy explorers are prepared to pit their courage and strength against the extreme conditions. Vanessa Berlowitz, series producer on the BBC's Frozen Planet, and travel writer, Sara Wheeler, have both endured life in the freezer, and explain the appeal and the challenges of living and working in the North and South Poles. And, a chance to hear carols from Herefordshire which have been re-published after being out of print for almost a century.
