Lindsay Duncan joins Jenni to discuss her role as Clementine Churchill in a new TV drama.

Jimmy Savile Review. Following the publication of Dame Janet Smith's review into the BBC's culture and practices during the Jimmy Savile and Stuart Hall years we hear the response from a Savile survivor and from Nicole Westmarland Professor of Criminology at Durham University. Why is it so difficult to report abuse in large organisations like the BBC, what is the impact of a "macho culture" identified by Dame Janet Smith and what lessons can be learned?

Do you have just too much to do? Do you live in a blur of meetings, deadlines and appointments? In an extract from Late Night Woman's Hour to be broadcast tonight we hear about the drastic measures taken by two women to gain control of their lives.
And the actor Aoife Duffin currently performing in a Girl is A Half-formed Thing at the Young Vic.
