Phyllis Logan on Patricia Highsmith, Improving women's healthcare, Child carers

Improving women's healthcare, Phyllis Logan on playing Patricia Highsmith, the lives of child carers, and Dorothy Wordsworth and Scafell Pike.

We discuss plans to improve women's heath with Health Minister, Jackie Doyle-Price and Lesley Regan, President of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. Phyllis Logan is playing the late Patricia Highsmith, famous for her Ripley series of psychological thrillers, in play by Joanna Murray Smith. They discuss bringing the famous writer to the stage. We look at the lives of child carers and explore the challenges they face. And, we hear about Dorothy Wordsworth's place in the history of mountaineering, 200 years ago.
