An iconic photograph of Kim Phuc inspired Christina Noble to set up a charity supporting thousands of children in Vietnam. We play an interview with Kim from our archive and speak to Christina, who's won a Women of the Year Lifetime Achievement Award. There's an update on the recent vote in Northern Ireland to criminalise paying for sex. Jenni is joined by India Knight with advice for those in their prime: Older, Wiser, Happier, and she speaks to Sophie Lewis who was born without a womb, and Consultant Richard Smith on the prospects for womb transplants in the UK.
