Grieving and clothes; Angie Le Mar; pianist Di Xiao

Presented by Jane Garvey. When you lose a loved one, how do you help keep the memories alive? Jane Garvey finds out why, for one woman, cuddling up in her husband's cricket sweater, is a powerful reminder of happier times - and also talks to counsellor and psychotherapist Philip Hodson about just how this helps in the grieving process. Jane interviews the acclaimed stand-up comedian, actor, and writer Angie Le Mar as she returns to the London stage. Pianist Di Xiao performs live in the studio. In the latest in our plant selector series we look at Autumn plants including Escallonia Iveyi. And Jane talks to Kingwa Kamencu, the 28 year-old Oxford University student campaigning to be the next President of Kenya.
