New stalking law

On 25 November a new law will come into force making stalking a criminal act. Alison Hewitt, who was a victim of stalking,  joins Jenni to talk about the life-changing consequences of this experience which has been portrayed in a Channel 4 documentary, Living with my Stalker, broadcast on Thursday 22 Nov at 2200. Criminal behaviour analyst Laura Richards, who was a leading campaigner in pushing for the law change, explains the significance of the new law. 

Vogue’s Grace Coddington

Grace Coddington, the flame-haired Creative Director of American Vogue, has over 50 years of experience on fashion’s frontline – first as a model, and then with her imaginative photo spreads in Vogue magazine. Now 71 years old, she joins Jenni to share her experiences of being a glamorous model hanging out with the coolest names in London’s Swinging Sixties, her years on the other side of the camera at Vogue, and on that most influential, yet challenging of fashion partnerships - working with Anna Wintour. Grace: A Memoir is published by Chatto & Windus

Women's unemployment

How many women are out of work in the UK? Recent contributors to Woman’s Hour have disagreed on the figures. Ruth Alexander from BBC Radio 4’s More or Less investigates the statistics.

Antonio Carluccio: Cook the Perfect Rice Balls

Antonio Carluccio will be demonstrating his recipe for arancini, or Italian rice balls – a great way to use up leftover risotto. Known for his TV appearances, books, and highly successful restaurant chain, Antonio will also be talking about his autobiography, A Recipe for Life, in which he reflects on the food, the events and the women who have influenced his life, and writes very frankly about the depression from which he has suffered for over fifty years.
