Episode 201 of 723 episodes

Carey Mulligan talks about playing Bathsheba in the new film version of Far From the Madding Crowd. In October 2012, five year old April Jones was abducted in the Welsh village of Machynlleth. Her parents Coral and Paul Jones discuss the book they’ve written about their daughter and their continuing campaign against online child pornography. Does a woman’s sense of identity shift at the age of 50 and if so how? Three 50 something women tell us about their lives. More students are choosing to fund their education by working in the sex industry. We hear from an escort about her decision. Is it ever right to pass judgement on brides and their choice of wedding dress? The actress Noomi Rapace made a name for herself when she starred in the original version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. She discusses her new film Child 44 and why she’s drawn to roles in such dark films. And the award winning spoken word artist Hollie McNish performs her poem Bricks.
