The child migrant refugees living in the Jungle camps in Calais.

The child migrant refugees living in the Jungle camps in Calais. Plus Sarah Alexander, chief executive and artistic director of the National Youth Orchestra on this year's Prom.

We continue our series about the day to day life of the women, mothers and child migrant refugees living in the unofficial 'jungle' and official camps in Calais. Today we hear about the unaccompanied children, and discuss the issues facing them.

Sarah Alexander, Chief Executive and Artistic Director of the National Youth Orchestra, discusses the orchestra's upcoming BBC Prom and the influence of the world of science on the music it will be performing.

And, as the fashion house Dior hires Maria Grazia Chiuri to be their first female creative director, we look at the significance of her appointment - and ask the big fashion Houses still matter?

The Dresses of Diana, Princess of Wales; Caring for Your Spouse

What happens when your spouse becomes ill and you have to take care of them?

With Nikki Bedi. Caring for your spouse; the dresses of Diana, Princess of Wales; black female police officers - 1981 and now; #thisgirlcan; and craft and its benefits to health.

Our series on caring continues. What happens when your spouse becomes ill and you have to take care of them? We speak to two listeners who care for their husbands.

'Diana: Her Fashion Story' traces the evolution of the style of Diana, Princess of Wales, from the demure, romantic outfits of her first public appearances, to the glamour, elegance and confidence of her later life. Today we start with the "debutante" dress dating back to 1979, when Lady Diana Spencer was just 18 years old and just two years from her marriage to The Prince of Wales. Georgina Hewes is joined by the exhibition's curator Eleri Lynn, and Fashion historian Amber Butchart. .

And in the week that has seen the appointment of the first woman Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Cressida Dick, the final part of our series of interviews talking to other women in the Police Force. We hear WPC Cheryl Williams in November 1981 on the beat in Greenwich, the only Black Police Officer in that area of London, at the time. And Police Constable Investigator, Christel Tchakounte, from one of the murder squads in Lewisham joins Nikki live.

You might remember Sport England's This Girl Can campaign - women of all shapes, sizes and ability on our screens telling us mantras like "I might be slow but I'm lapping everyone on the couch". The campaign returns to our television screens with new women to inspire us. We speak to Catherine, a 67 year old British Military Fitness fan, who is part of the new advert.

The Woman's Hour Craft Prize in partnership with the Crafts Council and the Victoria and Albert museum is currently being judged, winners to be announced later this year. But whether you've entered the prize, are a small business selling handmade goods, or are a hobbyist, one of the many benefits of making things with your hands is that it occupies your mind. So if you need any encouragement to restart that project in these dark days of winter, we'll be hearing from Dr Jayne Wallace, researcher in craft futures and glass artist Pinkie Maclure about what craft can do for your health.

Talking about miscarriage, Miranda Richardson, Leaving care

Nikki Bedi looks at miscarriage. Plus Miranda Richardson on May We Be Forgiven by AM Homes

Nikki Bedi looks at miscarriage. Plus Miranda Richardson on May We Be Forgiven by AM Homes. And what are the challenges facing young people leaving children's homes?

Around one in five pregnancies end in miscarriage but it's a subject that people often struggle to talk about openly. Lisa Francesca Nand and David Kirk break the silence in a documentary 'First Heartbeat' which they made about their personal journey trying for a family and the miscarriages they experienced along the way.

Miranda Richardson was Chair of Judges in 2013 for the Women's Prize for Fiction which was awarded to May We Be Forgiven by A M Homes. Is it in line for winner of the Best of the Best?

Young people in residential care homes in the UK are expected to live independently from the age of 18. In the first of two special features for National Care Leavers Week Jo Morris speaks to Natalie a young woman who is preparing to leave the children's home where she has lived since the age of 14. Martin Crewe, Children's Services Director for Barnardos describes the challenges facing young people like Natalie.

'Beauty Day' gives respite to women in the Calais 'Jungle'

Refugee integration strategy, Pretty Woman, Beauty Day in Calais 'Jungle, Women's rugby.

Do we need a refugee integration strategy for men coming to the UK? Plus the Summer of Love series - Pretty Woman, Beauty Day in the Calais refugee camp, and GB women's rugby.

A 'sensitive' introduction to a different culture should be available to men settling in Britain, says Labour MP, Thangam Debbonaire, chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Refugees. In Norway it is compulsory for every asylum seeker to attend classes on female rights and respect for women. How effective are these classes, how are they received by the refugees themselves and should something similar be established in the UK? Zoe Gardner from Asylum Aid joins journalist, Jenny Kleeman to discuss.

In the latest of our Summer of Love series the writer Jenny Colgan explains why there is still pleasure to be had from watching Pretty Woman despite its sexual politics. And, the journalist and sex educator Alix Fox on Julia Roberts' portrayal of a sex worker rescued by a millionaire.

Around 600 women currently live in the refugee and migrant camp in Calais. The Unofficial Women and Children's centre run by Help Refugees stocks nappies, shampoo, sanitary items and tickets for clothes and shoes distribution. Men are never allowed inside the centre. On a Saturday residents gather for the weekly 'Beauty Day', a free service which gives the women chance to socialise.

In this month's edition of Women's Health, five of the members of the women's GB rugby sevens team have taken part in a nude photo shoot aiming to celebrate female bodies of different shapes and different sizes. Is it an empowering portrayal or does it undermine a message that women's sport is taken seriously?

Fiddler on the Roof lyricist, how musicals have evolved since 'Fiddler', Olafur Eliasson

Sheldon Harnick on his new musical, 50 years of musicals and artist Olafur Eliasson.

Fiddler On The Roof lyricist, Sheldon Harnick, on his new musical, a look at how musicals have evolved over the last 50 years and Danish artist Olafur Eliasson on Scandinavian art.

All day long I'd bidi-bidi-bum... Sheldon Harnick is 93 and won worldwide acclaim as the lyricist of the hugely successful Fiddler on the Roof. As a new production of Rothschild & Sons, one of his lesser-known musicals, opens in this country he talks about a lifetime of lyrics.

Britain's first professor of Musical Theatre, Professor Millie Taylor, and theatre critic David Benedict discuss the evolution of the musical since the premiere of Fiddler on the Roof in 1964.

The Danish Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson is best known for his large-scale installation art using natural elemental materials, such as The Weather Project, a dazzling sun in Tate Modern's Turbine Hall. Nikki Bedi met him at his studio in Copenhagen to discuss his views on the cultural landscape of Denmark, artistic collaborations and breakdancing.

Soprano Danielle De Niese, Caring at home, Flat-sharing in your forties

The business of caring for someone at home. Danielle de Niese, 'opera's coolest soprano'.

Theresa May's trousers have been in the headlines for almost two weeks. There is discussion on whether it is ever acceptable to comment on what a woman wears.

Theresa May's leather trousers have been in the headlines for almost two weeks. Was Virginia Woolf right when she said that clothes 'change our view of the world and the world's view of us'. We discuss whether it is ever OK to comment on what a woman wears.

Karen Guthrie's film The Closer We Get is about caring for her mother in her last years after a stroke. Karen Guthrie talks about why she made it and how the film is being used to help carers and train care assistants.

Danielle de Niese has been described as 'Opera's coolest soprano'. In one recent project she takes part in a behind-the scenes documentary of the opera The Barber of Seville in which she starred at Glyndebourne this year.

The number of people flat sharing well in their forties has risen dramatically with figures showing a surge in middle-aged renters priced out of the property market. Anna Bailey is a flat sharer in her forties and we asked her to talk to her own flatmate, Jackie, and others like about the experience of shared housing when you're well past student age.

Late diagnosis and misdiagnosis of women and girls with Asperger Syndrome has been receiving more publicity in recent years but the data is scattered and limited resources mean that some women don't get the support they need. Jane, a Woman's Hour listener, got in touch and is joined by Dr Judith Gould, an expert in autism spectrum disorder.
