A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives.

This week: That Certain Age
What happens when the children have grown up and left home? Is the marriage empty? What happens when married and single women must accept middle-age? Increasingly today, women from their late thirties to their early fifties find 'that certain age' involves special stress and a unique loneliness.
