TV Like Broadchurch Can Help Rape Survivors Find Their Voice

For survivors to see their own experiences reflected back to them can be a powerful thing, it can help them recognise that they are not alone in what they have lived through and continue to cope with. These TV shows can help survivors to find ways to speak about their experiences and access support, and can help society realise just how important it is to believe survivors, and to support them and be alongside them. I also hope it will help foster a shift in attitudes where we place the blame and shame on perpetrators, where it belongs.

It's a Brit Awards special in the newest edition of 'Into It', and we had plenty to say about this year's ceremony. As well as checking back on our predictions from last week to see how correct we were, we reflect on Robbie Williams' Brits Icon victory, and suggest ways producers can improve for next year. Plus, diversity was such a hot topic in the lead-up to the Brits, did the show itself really reflect that? Spoiler alert: no, no it did not.

Last week, the BBC aired a potentially ground-breaking episode of Dragons' Den when sanitary box provider 'DAME' made their show debut. It was huge. Their appearance was set to prove that there is money to be made in women's hygiene products and that it's OK to talk about periods. That's pretty amazing. Only it wasn't, at all.

Donald Trump uses the word "enjoy" very often in his tweets, mostly when he is about to be interviewed about political issues. This has made me wonder whether he subconsciously links the US Government with entertainment.

Why I'm Doing The Jump

Mark Dolan

The only time I have allowed my body to sail through the air is in the comfort of a Ryanair 737. As a child, I didn't ice skate, rollerblade, skateboard - any of those things that involve relinquishing control of the body to the forces of momentum or gravity. I have always loved to be on the ground.

In an era of anxiety about the proliferation of fake news, and the need to support British creative and commercial success internationally, protecting the best of the BBC and encouraging it to innovate and excel has never been more important. So it is of deep concern that recent months have seen growing anxiety that government policy is threatening both the independence of the BBC and its continuing ability to deliver core activities.

It Saddens Me Deeply But, Officially, I Never Actually Gave 'Birth' To My Son, Archie

If you look at the records, he simply doesn't exist, as if he was a somehow nothing more than a figment of my imagination. But he's so much more than that. And while Archie was only on this Earth for a few short minutes, he existed to me. He was, and will always be, my little boy and there's not a day goes by that I don't think of him. You see, according to UK law as it stands, a parent cannot be issued with a birth certificate if the child is born showing no signs of life before 24 weeks.
