August 3rd, 2016

Episode 649 of 722 episodes

We continue our series about the day to day life of the women, mothers and child migrant refugees living in the unofficial 'jungle' and official camps in Calais. Today we hear about the unaccompanied children, and discuss the issues facing them. Sarah Alexander, Chief Executive and Artistic Director of the National Youth Orchestra, discusses the orchestra's upcoming BBC Prom and the influence of the world of science on the music it will be performing. And, as the fashion house Dior hires Maria Grazia Chiuri to be their first female creative director, we look at the significance of her appointment - and ask if the big fashion Houses still matter? Presented by Nikki Bedi Producer Beverley Purcell.
