Six Little Miracles

Author:

Janet Walton/Robert Ettinger

Synopsis:

Janet had been told she couldn't have children, so she and her husband Graham were overjoyed to find out she was pregnant. Then they told her it was not just one baby, but six! On 18 November 1983, Janet gave birth to the world's first all-female sextuplets: Hannah, Lucy, Ruth, Sarah, Kate and Jenny. Janet takes us through the reality of parenting six children of the same age - the extreme sleep deprivation, the bottle-feeding, and later the chaotic routine of getting the six of them to school on time. As they grew up, Janet kept a sense of humour through the teenage tantrums and boy trouble, and she watched her little girls blossom into individual, confident young women. She has loved every minute.

Unfair Trade

Author:

Conor Woodman

Synopsis:

In UNFAIR TRADE Conor Woodman traces a range of products back to their source to uncover who precisely is benefiting and who is losing out. He goes diving with lobster fishermen in Nicaragua who are dying in their hundreds to keep the restaurant tables of the US well stocked. And he risks falling foul of the authorities in Laos as he covertly visits the country's burgeoning rubber plantations, established to supply Chinese factories that in turn supply the West with consumer goods. In the process, he tests accepted economic wisdom on the best way to create a fairer world - and suggests a simpler but potentially far more radical solution.
