Actor Jessica Raine, perhaps best known for her lead role as Jenny Lee in Call the Midwife, will be talking about her new role in ITV's new period drama "Jericho". Who are the women to watch in 2016? Political journalist Anne McElvoy and the Economist Bronwyn Curtis discuss the women poised to impact global events over the next twelve months. Plus apart from friends or family where do you turn for help as a parent? Do Internet forums and message boards help answer your questions or just end up confusing you more? The blogger Unmumsy Mum, otherwise known as Sarah Turner, and Mumsnet Editor Sarah Crown talk about pros and cons of parenting advice in the digital age. Plus we talk to 19 year old, Canadian, R&B pop singer-songwriter, Alessia Cara who's just been unveiled as Number Two in this year's BBC Radio 1 Sound Of 2016 poll.
