There is still a lot of stigma surrounding mental health issues, and some people still do not believe it exists... but the truth is, it does. Whether you believe prisoners get things too easy, there's no denying that any illness needs to be treated whether that be physical or mental.
The suffering in Gaza continues unabated. The strip is blockaded from land, sea and air and bombed from land, sea and air. The death toll has climbed past 550, including at least 100 Palestinian children. Yet, still, silver-tongued Israeli officials continue to take to the airwaves to defend the indefensible.
Some stories are best told with visualisation... They aren't flashy; they are simple and designed to convey key information quickly... The amount of data being generated by the World Cup lets us explore anything.
Doctor Puppet is a series of stop motion animated shorts featuring characters and concepts from the sci-fi series ... "We are working on episode 6 and it will premiere at the end of August. We're actually doing something really different and exciting".
As a sales pitch, perhaps it leaves something to be desired. "Pay more, get less." Who could resist? Yet for reasons that I have never understood, that's exactly what's on offer from those people who argue that it's time to scrap the BBC licence fee and switch to some form of subscription-based financing.
Tony Hall has recognised that this model is unsustainable, old fashioned and just wrong. In an increasingly fragmented media world none of us can rely on audience brand loyalty, we have to always do the very best we can.
Russia may have rejected the show outright. But, the 'House of Cards' has a lot of takers in China. Produced by Netflix and starring Kevin Spacey as Frank Underwood, this political drama set in 1990 BBC miniseries is clocking good viewership in the communist China.
On paper, a group of ageing middle class men wittering on for eight hours about a sport where very little can happen for five days straight doesn't sound like radio gold, however the BBC has turned it into an art form.
Djokovic has apparently turned to Federer, the father of two sets of twins, for some advice on how to manage the relationship of being a husband/father and world-class tennis player and who has now become world No 1.
The Secretary star joined me in central London to discuss The Honourable Woman - her most challenging role - as well as London life and future plans with her actor husband, Peter Sarsgaard.
The horrifying reality of domestic abuse is that it happens in the home, often over a period of time in which abuse may escalate into severe violence. However because of the ongoing nature of this sort of crime, it becomes inexcusable that there is a deficiency in effective intervention and prevention.
For a World Cup to exist in the memory long after the event and maybe even get a slot in a future BBC3 nostalgia show hosted by Olly Murs... it'll be those other moments which define its status as a great tournament.
Last week millions tuned in to watch the BBC's Tigers About the House, featuring British born Giles Clark, a zoo keeper from Australia Zoo in Queensland. Mass 'awws', 'ooohs' and smiles filled the nation as tiger cubs Spot and Stripe playfully and rather adorably fed from the hands of their carer at home.
Last week it was announced that four sad people with no sense of humour, no discernable social skills, no life, no experience and no self-awareness had complained to the BBC about the lovely Samantha...
The BBC needs to be fully autonomous, with a truly independent management and executive team that is free from the temper tantrums of governmental talking heads.
I love Danger Mouse. Well, I loved it when I was eight. I'd probably love it again now if I was still eight. But the announcement that Danger Mouse was being remade by the BBC was a bit of a shock.
