Sounds of 2013; Choosing a guardian for your children; Men who secretly diet; Birmingham gun crime

Presented by Jenni Murray. This year women artists have dominated the shortlist for the BBC's annual poll of new musical talent. Music journalist Jude Rogers considers who are the names set to make it big in 2013? Marcia Shakespeare and Beverley Thomas - the mothers of two girls killed in a drive by shooting 10 years ago - talk about their ongoing crusade against gang and gun crime. Appointing a legal guardian for children is the one of the most important decisions a parent can make. How do you decide who will look after your children if the worst should happen? Jenni talks to author and mother of three, Lizzie Enfield and to Liz Braude, head of wills, trusts and estate planning at law firm Pannone. A recent survey by a diet brand of over 600 men found that although the majority wanted to lose weight a third of them wanted to keep quiet about it - out of sheer embarrassment. It seems that for some men dieting is still "something women do". Hairy Biker, Dave Myers, who recently lost 3 stone, and Dr Ian Campbell, GP and specialist in weight management, discuss men's attitudes to dieting.
