Jane Garvey presents. Anne-Marie Duff on going from Shameless to posh in Cause Celebre, a tale of love, betrayal, loyalty and obsession on the London stage. A small but significant number of children are raised by older siblings. We look at a new report which questions the practical and financial support given by social services. We talk to the teacher, sacked after a book she'd written featuring her pupils ended up on the internet. Suffragette Emily Wilding Davison is best known for throwing herself under the King's horse at the Epsom Derby in 1913. Less well known is how she spent Census night 1911 - we discover why she hid in a cupboard in the House of Commons. We hear from the woman at the centre of protests after the disputed presidential elections in the Ivory Coast and the march that ended with seven women being shot by soldiers. Novelist Esther Freud on the hopes and trials of young actors in search of the Lucky Break - the title of her latest book. And when is a hat not a hat? Our fascination for fascinators.
