Harriet Harman; Prioritising partners over children; Male genitalia on TV
Labour Deputy Leader and Power Lister Harriet Harman MP on her life in politics, live from the party's annual conference in Brighton. Writer Andrew G Marshall argues why we should prioritise relationships with partners before those with our children.

We discuss whether this signifies a double standard with journalist Bim Adewumni and Gub Neal, former head of drama at Channel 4. The problems that can be experienced by parents at border control when children have different surnames.

An MP since the early 1980s, she’s served in both government and in opposition, currently as Shadow Secretary of State for Culture. No “shrinking violet”, she has long championed the cause of women, in parliament for example through all-women shortlists, and outside it through equalities’ legislation.

Why are there so few penises on TV?
Why are there so few penises on television? You might view them on the odd medical show or documentary but when it comes to drama it’s a different matter. Naked breasts on the other hand are everywhere. Does it matter? Do we want to see more penises? Or at least an equal level exposure of breasts and penises. Journalist Bim Adewunmi and TV producer, formerly Head of Drama at Channel 4, Gub Neal join Jane.
