Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy on re-telling the dark tale of Rumpelstiltskin. She's joined by Liv Lorent, artistic director and choreographer to discuss BalletLORENT's production , the last of the company's trilogy of Brothers Grimm fairy tales following critically acclaimed productions of Rapunzel and Snow White.

How women are being helped to talk to their children if they have concerns about radicalisation or grooming. Sofia Mahmood director of an organisation called 'Empowering Minds' gives advice and support to groups in the community. Reporter Catherine Carr meets some of the women on a four-week course in Bradford.

Are comedy panel shows doing enough to represent funny women? Three years ago the BBC said broadcasting a programme without a woman was not acceptable - but is one woman enough? Why are there still so few female comedians on our screens? Lecturer in comedy writing and performance at Salford University Lisa Moore who wants a 50/50 gender split on all panel shows and comedian Tiff Stevenson discuss.
