On Friday's Backchat, sexual harassment. After the revelations about Hollywood Mogul Harvey Weinstein, many actors, sports stars and others, as well as hundreds of thousands of others through twitter are stating that they have suffered sexual harassment and assault. If people are aware of the scale of the problem will it change attitudes? Why did people like Harvey Weinstein get away with it, when so many were aware of the problem? How can women without power fight back? Do women in Chinese societies suffer less harassment than in the West? Call us on 23388266 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. After 9.20, new laws on animals in traffic accidents.

On Friday's Backchat, will we have enough doctors? A report claims there will be a shortage of 4000 people in nine healthcare professions by 2030, with a shortfall of 1000 doctors and 1600 nurses.
