Burkini ban; Teenage boys and body image

What will the impact be of a burkini ban in French resorts? Plus boys' body image, food prepping, jousting, Sarah Morris on her mother, award-winning journalist Sue Lloyd-Roberts.

What will the impact be of a burkini ban in two French resorts? UK correspondent for the news channel France 24, Benedicte Paviot and Feiza Ben Mohamed from the Federation of Muslims in the South of France, join Jane.

How do the body types seen in adverts, social media and porn affect teenage boys? We ask Lisa, a mother, and psychotherapist and writer, Susie Orbach.

Would you ever consider preparing all your meals for the week in one day? It's one of the latest crazes on social media. Does this sound like a lot of hard work or is it a brilliant idea? Jane speaks to health blogger Sophie Benbow who has been prepping her food for two years, and nutritionist Sarah Flower to find out more about food prepping.

Nicky Willis is a professional horse rider who has been jousting on the European circuit for six years. This summer sees her first jousts in the UK at English Heritage tournaments. We join her at Pendennis Castle in Cornwall to find out what it takes to be a female knight.

Before she died, award-winning journalist Sue Lloyd-Roberts wrote a book about the violence and persecution faced by women across the world - The War On Women, And the Brave Ones Who Fight Back. Sue's daughter, Sarah, completed the book, and wrote about her memories of Sue, as journalist, campaigner and mother.
