Sonali Deraniyagala lost her husband, children and parents in the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami. She tells Jane about her life since that day and how she came to write her memoir, Wave. Kanya King talks to Sarah Jane Crawford about being the founder of the MOBO Awards. The number of women aged 60-64 who have a smear test is at a 15 year low. We discuss the reasons for this drop in numbers and what the implications are. And we hear about a cheap and simple test for cervical cancer that has cut the death rate from the disease in India by 31 per cent. Presented by Jane Garvey. Show less
