Jane Garvey in Accra Ghana

Jane Garvey is live in Accra, Ghana to mark Red Nose Day’s 25th Anniversary and to share some of the good news about the difference Comic Relief money has made. Projects like the Comic Relief funded Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisations (GAVI) which distributes vaccines against pneumococcus and rotavirus. Staff and patients talk about how this clinic is helping transform lives. Also, ‘Mumsnet Blogger’ Penny Alexander gives her impressions of how comic relief money is making a difference in Ghana.

Teenage pressures of living a life through social media

A recent study from Germany has revealed that one in three people felt worse after visiting Facebook. They were envious about witnessing other people’s holidays, love lives etc. But what impact is it having on this generation of teenagers who have grown up with social media.  To coincide with Safer Internet Day we discuss the social pressures of navigating those teenage years in a very public way. Reporter Judy Merry hears from a group of teenagers. And Aasmah is joined by Lucie Russell, Director of Campaigns, Policy and Participation at Young Minds and Dr Barbie Clarke, Managing Director, Family, Kids and Youth.

Philip Treacy

Philip Treacy’s love of fashion and hats started at the age of six, when he would sneak into weddings at the church over the road from his house. After a twenty year long career, that passion for beautifully made things has not subsided, and his creations have graced the heads of models, royalty and celebrity. Philip Treacy talks to Aasmah Mir about his undiminished love of hats.
