Hidden harm caused by hip implants, and battery-killing phone apps

The hip implants harming patients even when they display no symptoms, the smartphone apps killing your battery, and who is cashing in on the popularity of running?

Is the NHS giving hip replacement patients sufficient aftercare? We hear from people who have had metal-on-metal hip replacements go wrong - sometimes without any outward signs to trigger medical intervention. Official guidance does not recommend annual checks without due cause, but should all metal-on-metal hip implants be X-rayed every year - just in case?

Also on the programme - sick of your phone running out of juice? We look at which smartphone apps drain the most power from your battery?

And why running - that most basic and cheapest physical activity - has become such big business. Who cashes in every time you go jogging?
