Restorative Justice, Lap Dancing and Music Hall
Presented by Jenni Murray. Bad behaviour can be one of the biggest problems in schools, but can restorative justice help resolve the problems underlying misbehaviour? The number of lap dancing clubs in UK towns and cities has doubled since 2004 to over 300 venues. And increasingly it is becoming an employment option for some women who see it as an alternative to working in low paid, unskilled jobs. How far has lap dancing become more acceptable to a generation of young people? Is it ok for a man to show his emotions in public? Your views. The Silver Belles are a group of mostly retired women who formed a choir and now travel round the north east singing to residents in care homes - many of whom suffer from dementia . They are also teaching the care assistants how to sing. Some of the highest paid entertainers on the Victorian stage were women, though they were famously known as men. Singer, Jessica Walker discusses the lives, on and off the stage, of music hall male impersonators.
