Do men want to be the principal breadwinner in a relationship? Writer Tony Parsons thinks so, and joins Jane to discuss. The Chelsea flower show is open to the public today - while the designs exhibited may be beautiful, how environmentally friendly are they? Should we even be concerned about how green gardening is, or should we just enjoy the showcase of talent? Should schools take parent's views into account when deciding how to teach potentially controversial subjects? And the historian Lucy Worsley on her new TV series, a 17th Century History for Girls. Presented by Jane Garvey.
