Childcare, Composer Anne Dudley, Children of alcoholics, Craft prize
Jane Garvey hosts the programme, including the launch of a new series on children of alcoholics. Plus Anne Dudley, who has just won an Ivor Novello award for her songwriting.
As the general election gets nearer we take a look at childcare and ask listeners how they think childcare could be made easier, more convenient and more affordable.
Anne Dudley has just been an awarded the PRS for Music Outstanding Contribution to British Music at the Ivor Novello awards, for her work as a songwriter, arranger, producer and television film composer. Her music ranges from ABC's Lexion of Love album to the soundtrack to Poldark and the film The Full Monty
The launch of a new series on children of alcoholics. We asked you to get in touch if you had been affected by this subject, and many of you did. Over the series we will be hearing about some of your experiences. We start with Lynne who grew up in Yorkshire with an alcoholic mother who died twelve years ago from complications caused by her drinking. Jo Morris is the reporter.
1500 applicants, 29 judges, a lot of deliberation and some amazing work... we had a fantastic array of entrants for the Woman's Hour Craft Prize but there can only be 12 finalists who will get to show at the Victoria and Albert Museum exhibition in September. Today we find out who they are.
