WHNews: Teacher Pupil Relationship; Secret Eating

January 19th, 2015

Episode 121 of 722 episodes

We look at teacher/pupil relationships and why there is still debate about whom the 'victim' is in cases where sex has occurred. Julie Hesmondhalgh has a new part in Russell T Davies's latest drama, Cucumber. Dr Helen Lambert talks about her latest research that shows that potassium salts, found in fruit, can help to prevent osteoporois and we ask GP Clare Gerada how we can best get health messages across to the public. Louise Wilkinson talks about medieval princess Eleanor De Montfort known by some as the 'Mother of the Parliament'. We consider why some people eat in private and when it becomes a problem with psychologist Deanne Jade and writer Sarah Rainey.
