Michelle Ping, Royal Navy Reservist, talks about her work training Armed Forces and health workers to fight the Ebola virus in Sierra Leone. Emma Banks represents some of the world's leading musicians including Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Florence and the Machine and many others. She's also Chair of Nordoff Robbins, a music therapy charity, which is approaching its 30th anniversary. Marches against sexual violence have been happening for decades but have received little attention in the mainstream press. So why, when an anti-rape march took place in April 2011 called SlutWalk, subsequently repeated around the world, did the press pay so much attention? Presenter: Jane Garvey Producer: Lucinda Montefiore.
