Thomasina Miers' new book 'Home Cook' includes achievable, fuss-free recipes. She joins Jenni in the studio to Cook the Perfect...Tortillas with Toasted Black Beans and Jalapeno Hummus. It's not just returning service personnel with PTSD who suffer - their wives, partners and families suffer with them. From going through partners' horrific episodes with them to protecting children - and themselves - from harm, these women feel they are now on the front line. Ahead of a Radio 3 documentary we hear from Nikita Dallison who cares for her husband who has the condition and from Matthew Green who's spent time in combat zones.
Best known for her ghost stories such as The Woman In Black, author Susan Hill discusses her new book From The Heart a coming-of-age story about Olive, a young woman growing up after the second World Wars. And, we continue our series looking at key women from ancient Greek drama and the ways in which they continue to inform debate about women in power today - today, Phaedra.
