Listener week: The mystery of the lost diary, Lyme disease, Child of a Catholic priest
A listener speaks about how she discovered her absent father was a Catholic priest, and another listener wants to trace the family of a diary writer by the name of May Stewart.
It's been a turbulent few weeks in politics, not least for the women involved in leadership struggles - Theresa May, Andrea Leadsom and Angela Eagle. Two listeners share their thoughts.
In the late 1990s Claudia Rizzo's father found the 1929 diary of May Stewart, a teenage girl from Letchworth, at a small railway station in southern Italy. Claudia wants to trace May's family.
We continue our Listener Week chain of interviews. Knitwear designer and blogger Kate Davies recommends sonic artist and knitter, Felicity Ford.
Summer is a good time to be tick-aware as families spend more time in environments where Lyme-disease carrying ticks live. If detected early, Lyme disease can often be treated effectively with antibiotics. But if it's not treated or left too late there is a risk that you could develop severe and long-lasting symptoms. We speak to a listener , whose daughter was diagnosed with Lyme in January this year, and Dr Sandra Pearson, medical director of Lyme Disease Action.
We hear from Hannah Robinson, a listener who discovered her absent father was a Catholic priest.
