Sona Jobarteh, Women in Islamic State, Rose Bretecher and OCD

Presented by Jenni Murray. Kora virtuso Sona Jobarteh performs in the studio.

Kora virtuso Sona Jobarteh performs in the studio, plus discussion on the increasing role of women in Islamic State, crime writer PD James, and pure obsessive compulsive disorder.

Sona Jobarteh is the first female virtuoso on the kora - the West African harp. She talks about her role as a woman in this traditionally male musical tradition and she performs live in the studio.

The number of Britons travelling to Syria to live under 'Islamic State' peaked two years ago, but the proportion of women among those still joining the extremist group has risen dramatically. The BBC's Security Correspondent Frank Gardner and Dr Katherine Brown, an expert in Islamic Studies at King's College London discuss how women are essential to the IS political strategy.

Rose Bret├ęcher's memoir 'Pure' reveals her struggle with a form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in which she experiences intrusive and unthinkable thoughts - often sexual or violent in content. Rose explains what it is like living with the disorder.

The historian Katherine Connelly takes us on the next stage of her tour exploring women's history in the East End of London. And our Queens of Crime series - crime writers Lin Anderson and Simon Brett discuss the work of PD James.

Edwina "IronGran" Brocklesby, tells how she took up marathons, triathlons and Iron Man racing in her 50s. She's still going strong at 75 and wants to spread the message that exercise helps physical and mental health whatever your age.

BBC Security Correspondent Frank Gardner talks about his latest thriller, Ultimatum, set in Iran.

Rai Rafiq tells how she came from Zanzibar as a child, to become co-host of one of the UK's most respected podcasts - Mostly Lit.

Also: Edwina Brocklesby's grandmother - Nan - cooked for Winston and Clementine Churchill at No 10 Downing Street during World War Two. Her mousseline pudding was almost the death of her and Britain's wartime leader during the Blitz. We want to hear stories about your grandmother - inspiring, heroic or just funny.

Child custody hearings, Box set watching

A discussion of child arrangement hearings that involve domestic violence.

Following The Archers storyline, the programme discusses child arrangement hearings that involve domestic violence. And three listeners reveal how they found a dream job after 50.

The Archers: we discuss child arrangement hearings that involve domestic violence. What are the possible outcomes for children like Henry and Jack? We're joined by family solicitor Elspeth Thompson from David Grace Solicitors in Newcastle and Polly Neate, Chief Executive of Women's Aid.

Three listeners tell us how they've managed to find a dream job after 50.

In France three women are under formal investigation over an alleged foiled attack in Paris. It has been reported in the press that British convert Sally Jones is training Jihadi women to attack the West. What do we know about women's involvement in terrorism, particularly the so called Islamic State? Jenni is joined by the BBC's security correspondent Frank Gardner and Dr Katherine Brown, Lecturer in Islamic Studies at the University of Birmingham.

You might not need them yet, but as the nights draw in (and they will) how do you decide which box sets to indulge in? Who gets to choose in your house? Take it in turns? Is it ever worth a compromise? We'll be discussing the domestic politics of box sets with journalist Stuart Heritage and novelist Jenny Colgan.
