41 minutes
First broadcast:
Thursday 05 July 2012

Can convenience foods be healthy? Scientists say they can and have developed a super-healthy in-flight meal.

As part of 'When I'm 65' - the ageing season we're running with BBC One - we are looking at some of the new design ideas making it easier to get older.

The government is announcing a series of "city deals" - eight English cities are being offered significant new powers and money. We find out what that means for some of the cities involved.

And it's five years since the smoking ban in England came in. After a spike in support to help people stop smoking there are concerns that this will now be withdrawn.

Presented by Winifred Robinson
Produced by Maire Devine.
