Jenni Murray presents. Love letters: to be treasured or reluctantly thrown into the trash? An early girlfriend of Pink Floyd band member Syd Barrett talks about hanging on to his letters and what they mean to her now. With less than a week to go to the Budget, we assess the likely impact on women and their families. We hear from the woman known as 'Kombat Kate' who puts Rory Kinnear's stage Hamlet through his paces in a sword fight. While fairy cakes were once the stuff of children's tea parties, increasingly cupcakes, whoopee pies and jellies are sold to grown women - a worrying infantilisation of food or a bit of fun?
