Presented by Sarah Kennedy
Rape is a violation of the human body and its distressing after-effects should never be underestimated. The way rape is reported often suggests there is little that women can do other than live under curfew. But is this true? Four women who outwitted potential rapists by their own resourcefulness tell of their experiences. And a simple move is shown which does not require physical strength, and which could help you escape from a rapist.

Mr Speaker, Sir!

BBC One Scotland

with David Jessel
At the heart of almost any experience we care about, disagree over or struggle through, lie complexities which sit uncomfortably in the black-and-white of news headlines.
As the main issues of the week develop, David Jessel looks for what matters, and considers the people and the principles, the prejudices and the passions-at the heart of the matter.
