Extraordinary stories, unusual people and a sideways look at the world. Craig Charles and David Emanuel, plus the inheritance tracks of geneticist Steve Jones.

Craig Charles and David Emanuel join Richard Coles and Aasmah Mir.

For a while Craig Charles was best known for playing Dave Lister in sci fi comedy Red Dwarf, but he has probably usurped that with his love for Funk and Soul, dj-ing on BBC 6 music and gigging around the country. With acting, poetry, performance, dj-ing and writing under his belt, now he's championing BBC Get Playing.

Fashion Designer and Royal Couturier David Emanuel has dressed Elizabeth Taylor, Madonna, Joan Collins and Princess Diana, done the Jungle and now he's on Saturday Live!

Claire Garabedian contacted Saturday Live about her unusual job - working in the therapeutic arts as a professional cellist. She joins Richard and Aasmah.

Earlier this year Lizzie Carr became the first person to paddle board the length of England via its connected waterways, using entirely human powered means. She'll tell us about her adventure, and why she did it.

We'll have a thank you from one of our listeners.

And we'll have the Inheritance Tracks of geneticist Steve Jones who chooses Rachie by Caradog Roberts and Richard Wagner: Twilight Of The Gods: Siegfried's Funeral March.

Jenni Murray talks to Deepti Kapoor about her debut novel A Bad Character.

Deepti Kapoor on her debut novel, how the Breakthrough Generations Study is helping scientists fight breast cancer, and is the internet the right place to discuss your sex life?

Deepti Kapoor talks about her first novel "A Bad Character." It's set in 21st century Delhi and offers an insight into what it means to be a middle-class woman who chooses to reject the security of an arranged marriage in a city that can intimidate single women.

Over the past twenty years considerable social, political and legal changes have taken place for the transgender community, after years of campaigning. Professor Sheila Jeffreys latest book claims that despite this progress, transgenderism illustrates another way in which stereotypical notions of 'gender' hurt people and societies.

Breakthrough Breast Cancer Generations Study spanning 40 years is celebrating its 10th anniversary. It's helping us understand why and how breast cancer develops and, in time, what steps we can take to prevent it . What's it discovered so far and what's it hope to achieve in the next 30 years.

Parenting sites can be great places for people to share advice and offer support - but are they the right place to openly discuss sexual issues ? Jenni looks at why some women confess intimate details online and ask whether graphic posts, such as ones about sex after birth and threesomes celebrate a woman's sexuality or reveal too much information.

Angela Merkel has been pictured wearing a colourful jacket that she has kept in her wardrobe for 18 years . Is she thrifty or is it just common sense to keep recycling the same outfits, regardless of whether you are in the public eye, or not?

Should paying for sex be criminalised? The arguments for and against, with Jane Garvey.

Should paying for sex be criminalised? Why do we know so little about the author of Lark Rise to Candleford? And trying to find work when you're 50 and a woman.

Should paying for sex be criminalised? There are proposals to change the laws on prostitution for the first time in twenty years. We hear from a former prostitute in favour of fining or jailing people who buy sex and from sex workers who argue that making it an criminal offence won't stop prostitution, but will make it more dangerous for the people involved.

As we begin the search for the ten women who should be on this year's Woman's Hour Power List 2014 Game Changers, we ask; how do you recognise a Game Changer, how do they operate and what are they like to manage?

Flora Thompson's Lark Rise to Candleford is one of the defining accounts of country life during the Victorian era, not to mention the inspiration for a hit television series. But why do we know so little about her?

What's it like to look for work in this competitive job market when you're a woman of a certain age?

Plus a team of girls in North London have become champions in robotics - what impact has it had on their ambitions?

And as the weather turns warmer what colour coats should we be wearing for Spring.
