How to turn your old clothes into cash - whether they're high end or bargain basement.

Inexperienced young drivers are involved in a disproportionately high number of road accidents causing death or serious injury. They learn about external hazards for the driving test - but what about behaviour inside the car? A teenager who passes the test in ideal conditions during the day, could be out driving that evening with a car-full of loud, lairy and most importantly, distracting mates. We hear about new technology that could help put a wise driving head on young shoulders and reduce the death toll amongst teenage motorists.

And - if you live outside the big cities where bands usually stage concerts, there's a new way to attract them to play where you live - even if it's off the usual tour circuit. Find out how you could choose who plays and where they put on the show.

Presenter: Julian Worricker.
