Girl From The North Country, Recovery, Samin Nosrat

Shirley Henderson and Sheila Atim talk about playing mother and adopted daughter, and bringing the music of Bob Dylan to the stage.

Shirley Henderson and Sheila Atim talk about playing mother and adopted daughter, and bringing the music of Bob Dylan to the stage. They're in the Old Vic's production of The Girl From the North Country. Written by Conor McPherson, it's set in Bob Dylan's home town of Duluth, Minnesota during the 1930's depression.

We have the second episode in our series called Life After. This time it's life after a cancer diagnosis and an addiction. What's it like to cope with the fear of a relapse?

And we cook the perfect Pasta alla Puttanesca with the chef Samin Nosrat. Her recipe comes from her new book Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat.
