Anne Fine on Gender-Biased Books; Overcrowded Canals; Fare Wars
Four major publishers have decided to stop printing books with titles including 'for girls' and 'for boys'. The bestselling children's author Anne Fine tells Peter White why it's about time gender-biased books are taken off the shelf.
Rising property prices in London and the south-east have led some people to give up bricks and mortar, and head on to the canals. The Canal and River Trust says it's a growing concern, because "the system wasn't designed to hold so many boats". You & Yours finds out the true extent of the rise, and discovers what life is like aboard a London narrow boat.
Plus fare wars: Simon Calder tells us about the increase in flights this winter from London City Airport to Dublin.
