Kirsten Scott Thomas on her latest film Suite Francaise, the story of a young woman living with her mother in law whilst her husband is a prisoner of war in German occupied France. We hear from the activist, Oby Ezekwesili, who started the #BringBackOurGirls campaign. She explains why she refuses to give up and believes all girls have the right to an education. Ahead of Mothering Sunday we look at "The Daughterhood," a group aimed at helping women improve their relationship with their mother or at least accept the one they currently have. Dame Julie Andrews reflects on her award winning career - 50 years after the release of The Sound of Music. Plus we look at what it means to be a Black Feminist? And why is Black feminism still not part of mainstream feminism. And Diana Henry rustles up a Turkish inspired salsa chicken, taken from her latest cookbook 'A Bird in the Hand' which is devoted entirely to chicken.
