Racism and Nightclub Door Policies - Clubber Zalika Miller who claims that she and her friends were turned away from a London club because of their skin colour and weight and Reni Eddo-Lodge, a journalist who specialises in gender and race relations discuss nightclub entrance practices.

On National Poetry Day, Andrew Marr examines the work of women poets Edna St Vincent Millay, Claudia Rankine and Margaret Cavendish with British poets Helen Mort and Ruth Padel.

To discuss when children become aware of their own sexuality and how we should talk to them about it, Jenni is joined by Mel Gadd, Projects Co-ordinator at the Family Planning Association, and Polly Shute, Fundraising Director for London LGBT Pride.

As never-before-seen photos by Lee Miller are displayed in a new exhibition at The Imperial War Museum, curator Hilary Roberts and Miller's son Tony Penrose talk about the World War 2 photographer's vision of gender.
