Presented by Jane Garvey. Gifted lives: what happens when gifted children grow up? Over a 35 year period, psychologist Joan Freeman recorded interviews with gifted and talented children, and monitored their progress as they grew up. What happens to a child when he or she is labelled as special in this way? And how best should a parent deal with a brilliant mind? The Visible in Stone online exhibition looks at how women's suffrage and trades union movements influenced architecture during the late 19th and early 20th centuries? Nano Scientist Professor Ijeoma Uchegbu talks about the work and we hear about three women who formerly worked for Goldman Sachs & Co. are suing the Wall Street firm for what they say is purposeful and institutional gender discrimination that unfairly favours men for pay and promotions.
