The former chief constable of Northumbria Police, Sue Sim, talks about her career and in particular her handling of the hunt for killer, Raoul Moat and the complaints made against her afterwards by officers in the force. Sim has now lodged a complaint against her accusers, and claims that male officers treated her differently because she was a woman. Time management Laura Vanderkam has written a book, I Know How She Does it, in which she provides a framework for anyone who wants to thrive at "having it all" in both work and life. Two very different leading British sculptors, Emily Young and Laura Ford, talk about their work. Health and Fitness apps are useful for setting goals to help achieve your desired weight. But are there are any safeguards in place for people with eating disorders who could easily use them in an obsessive and unhealthy way? Presenter: Jane Garvey Producer: Lucinda Montefiore.
