Talking to your kids about race, HRT shortages, and the demise of the bonkbuster novel

Talking to your kids about race. HRT shortages. We visit a community launderette in Anfield and find out why the bonkbuster novel has gone out of fashion.

Talking to your kids about race.

The UK is currently facing a shortage of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). What should you do if your normal supply of HRT tablets, skin patches or gels is unavailable? We hear from GP & menopause specialist Dr Hannah Short.

Plus Jane Garvey visits Kitty's Launderette in Anfield which provides much needed washing facilities in one of Liverpool's most deprived areas.

And we ask; Why have so called "bonkbuster" novels fallen out of favour with women - and look at what's taken their place.
