Secret eating, Teacher-pupil relationships, Julie Hesmondhalgh

Duration: 58 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Radio 4 FMLatest broadcast: on BBC Radio 4 LW

Available for over a year

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 is best known for playing Hayley Cropper, Coronation Street's first transgender character. Now she has a new part in Russell T Davies's latest drama, Cucumber, playing Cleo, sister of gay man Henry. Research at the University of Surrey has shown that potassium salts, found in fruit and veg, can help prevent osteoporosis. Dr Helen Lambert talks about the new research, and we ask GP Clare Gerada how we can best get health messages across to the public. Medieval princess Eleanor De Montfort is known as the 'Mother of the Parliament'. Louise Wilkinson, Professor of Medieval History talks about her significant role in the creation of the earliest Parliament in Britain. Eating in secret can range from the harmless but guilty pleasure of eating peanut butter straight from the jar to an indication or symptom of an eating disorder. We consider why some people eat in private and when it becomes a problem. Show less
