Presented by Jenni Murray. Featuring the bread and butter pudding revival and a discussion about new book The Sex Diaries Project.

Presented by Jenni Murray. Bread & butter pudding seems to be enjoying something of a revival - but how do we make sure ours is creamy and comforting, and not sloppy and bland? Chef and food writer Annie Stirk will be on hand to tell us. The Campaign to End Loneliness was launched this week. The Campaign's Director, Laura Ferguson, joins Jenni to explain why loneliness poses as great a threat to the health of older people as smoking or obesity. 'The Sex Diaries Project' draws on diary entries from over two hundred ordinary British people and claims to be a transparent window into our daily sexual thoughts and activities. But is it healthy to keep a sex diary and how seriously we should take them? And we meet Julie Stamper, who was honoured in the New Year's Honours list for her work with the Schoolgirl Mums Unit in Hull.
