Louise Bourgeois, Neighbours, Ad Women

Award-winning blues singer Rita Chiarelli performs and talks about her collaborative work with inmates of a US state penitentiary. Mad Men is back on our screens but what was life like for women working in Britain's advertising world? We look back 40 years to an earlier ad age. Artist Louise Bourgeois created a gigantic sculpture of a spider for Tate Modern in 1999. Two years after her death we visit a new exhibition of her work in London. People next door: how have neighbours and our relationships with them changed across the ages? We are joined by historian Emily Cockayne.
