Presented by Jenni Murray. In 1895 Elizabeth Cady Stanton published the first volume of the Woman's Bible, which challenged the religious doctrine of women's inferiority to men. As the General Synod prepares to approve the ordination of women bishops what relevance does Cady Stanton's work have today? Professor Richard Cooke, the man in charge of caring for the Walton sextuplets is retiring after forty years in neonatal care. He explains how how far we've come in the treatment of premature babies and the ethical dilemmas it has created. Singer Songwriter Jessica Hoop talks about her latest album. And did you do your courting in a car away from the prying eyes of your parents? We explore how the car changed the attitudes and sexual behaviour of young couples.
