The extraordinary life of female aviator Sheila Scott, who was the first woman to fly around the world in a light aircraft. The Irish Government has announced that it will be giving payments to some women who underwent a process during child birth called symphysiotomy, a surgical procedure involving sawing through a woman's pelvic bone to deliver her baby. But are these women being offered a fair deal? Men in the feminist movement; we ask if there is a place for them. And why do wills have the power to destroy families? We hear from people whose lives have been derailed by a family dispute over inheritance.
