Presented by Jenni Murray. We're told that meditation is good for us but why is it meant to be so beneficial? Jenni explores these questions with a meditation teacher and a seasoned practitioner. Dr Geetha Venkat is setting up a support group for British Asian couples coping with infertility. She'll be discussing differing cultural attitudes towards the problem with Premila Shaw, from the Polycystic Ovary Syndrome charity, Verity. We take a walk around the women's history of Liverpool and the jazz and classical singer Wendy Nieper performs live.
