55 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 28 January 2014

Rose Fostanes, the winner of Israeli X Factor and a Filipina care worker, speaks to Matthew Bannister.

Best-selling author Sir Terry Patchett was diagnosed with a form of Alzheimer's disease in 2007. So far he has continued to write but says that if it forces him to stop he wouldn't want to live.

Plus the story of a cheese. American Michael Paterniti has tracked down the maker of one of the world's most expensive cheeses, called Paramo de Guzman.

And Gigi Chao the gay Hong Kong socialite whose father is reported to have doubled his offer of $65 million to any man who can convince her to marry.
