  • The Psychiatric Impact of Infertility

    Looking at nearly 100 000 women, the largest study of women with infertility problems to date has been published by Danish researchers. They have found that women who were unable to have children were more than twice as likely to suffer from alcoholism and had a higher risk of experiencing other psychiatric disorders. Given the financial, as well as the human cost of picking up the pieces, is it time for us to prioritise the availability of infertility treatment and psychological support when it fails. Jenni talks to Lord Robert Winston; Susan Seenan, Deputy Chief Executive of Infertility Network UK; and to Dr Allan Pacey, chairman of the British Fertility Society.

  • James Bond Style

    If you're a James Bond fan, a new exhibition at the Barbican centre in London is a must for you. Designing 007 - Fifty Years of Bond Style brings together a huge collection of costumes, gadgets, vehicles, and models from the archive of Eon, the UK based production company which makes the films. It's a one-off chance to see costumes designed for glamour and action across the Bond films - everything from Ursula Andress's bikini to Daniel Craig's swimming trunks. In the first of a series getting up close and personal with some of these objects of desire, Judi Herman has been talking to the co-curator of the show, Bronwyn Cosgrave. She showed Judi three different outfits worn by Bond women who proved to be as ready for action as Bond himself.

    Designing 007 - Fifty Years of Bond Style is on show at the Barbican in London from Friday until 5 September 2012.
