Listen in pop-out player

A new film "Now is Good" has just been released. It is about a girl who is dying of leukaemia and how she deals with facing death and yet is determined to live her remaining life to the full. In reality, another seventeen girl from Swansea is seriously ill with an undiagnosed illness, she has been in and out of a hospice, discussed the prospect of death with her friends and has her own bucket list of dreams that she wants to fulfil. She speaks to Jenni about her experiences.

On October 1st, Kathleen Ollerenshaw, the acclaimed mathematician who was also a keen politician, celebrates her 100th birthday. We hear her speaking in an earlier interview to Jenni about her life.

And we'll be arguing about arguing. Is a bit of arguing essential for maintaining a healthy relationship between couples or should they be able to maintain a strong relationship without the odd heated debate?

Presented by Jenni Murray.
