Presented by Jane Garvey. Conservationist Dame Daphne Sheldrick on her life's work raising orphan elephants from birth and her programme to release them back into the wild. A new test to diagnose prostate cancer is proving to be more accurate and is less invasive, so how near are we to a national screening programme for men? She's written for Kylie Minogue and has a new album of her own out: Brit-nominated singer-songwriter Nerina Pallot performs live and discuss the highs and lows of her solo career. With children of drug addicts routinely taken into care, we talk to the foster mother who thinks addicts should be prescribed long-term contraception and discuss the arguments with a GP and the charity DrugScope.
