Craig Revel Horwood reflects on his role as Miss Hannigan in the musical Annie. The rising cost of childcare. And Dynasty's back on TV our screens.
Craig Revel Horwood reflects on reprising his role as Miss Hannigan in the musical Annie. It's a role usually played by a woman so how does he approach playing a drunk, lascivious, cruel woman.
Josephine Kulea, the founder of the Samburu Girls Foundation is fighting to end harmful cultural practices such as child marriage, FGM and beading in the pastoralist communities in Northern Kenya She'll be talking to Jenni about how the organisation has managed to rescue over 1,000 girls, and what she believes are the keys to changing attitudes and behaviour.
The cost of childcare is rising faster than wages in England, that's according to analysis from the TUC. There is government support for children aged two and above but most working parents with one-year-olds do not get any state help with childcare costs. Jenni discusses the issue with Megan Jarvie from the Family and Childcare Trust who say that for many parents work doesn't pay.
Plus fashion designer Lydia Higginson talks about how her latest project 'Made My Wardrobe' has helped her recover from a sexual assault.
And Dynasty reimagined for 2017. Julia Raeside who writes for the Guardian and the critic and broadcaster David Benedict look at how women are represented and how the show's changed to reflect the 21st Century.
