What do you do if your relationship is over, but you can't afford to live apart? The row over how universities are ranked. How easy is it to buy British? With Julian Worricker.

A study suggests that the cost of housing has led to couples being forced to continue living together after their relationship has failed. Rising rents have made it difficult for many to move out and find a place of their own. The blood test 'expert' who says he can treat cancer yet can't back up his claims. A row is developing over how the government ranks universities, with claims that students are being encouraged to apply to more prestigious institutions, rather than those which offer the most suitable course. What does it mean for a university to be within the "Russell Group"?

Producer: Jonathan Hallewell
Presenter: Julian Worricker.
