Know your nuns' habits, Singer Agnes Obel, Fight directors
Women with dementia get worse treatment than men and are given more sedatives. Researchers at University College London looked at the records of thousands of dementia patients over a decade. Dr Claudia Cooper, a specialist in Old-Age psychiatry who led the research joins Jane.
Danish musician and singer Agnes Obel talks about her music and her new album Citizens of Glass and performs her track Stone for us in the studio.
It's been a year since Storm Desmond brought severe gales, heavy rainfall and consequent flooding to parts of the UK. With flooding recognised as a major and chronic national hazard research from Lancaster University looked at how these natural disasters can severely affect children and young people. Project leader, Professor Maggie Mort explains why it's time to stop ignoring their experience.
Fight directors Rachel Bown-Williams and Ruth Cooper-Brown reveal how they choreograph and train actors to take part in fight scenes whether it's a punch up in the pub, a battle scene or a slap in the face. Their latest project is Peter Pan at the National Theatre.
Instantly recognizable but surprisingly varied, the nun's habit has a long and interesting history. We discuss this particularly niche area of female dress with the theologian Veronica Bennett, author of Looking Good: A visual guide to the nun's habit.
