02/24/2017At the beginning of November, an advert appeared on the lost and found section of a well-known website. Amongst the pictures of misplaced iPads, recovered wedding rings and lost drones, was a photo of a smiling young man, holding a new-born baby. 'Father and partner missing', it said. Zack's in his late 20s. He has bipolar disorder. On medication, he has it mostly under control. He and his girlfriend Kirsty had just moved into a new flat and become proud parents of their first child together. Life, they thought, was good. But one day in early November, on their five year anniversary and when the baby was just 5 weeks old, Zack left for work and never came home. His decision to go appeared meticulously planned. He had disappeared without trace. In a special, serialised version of The Untold, Grace Dent presents the story of a girlfriend turned sleuth, and her hunt for the truth. It's a search which takes her across the country. The police tell Kirsty that he's safe and well. She doesn't believe them. Her family try to warn her off the search. She ignores them. She hears news that he's working and has started a new life. She finds he has been gambling. She receives texts from him claiming he's lost his memory. Is he playing her, or does he need her help? Over the past three months The Untold has recorded with Kirsty and her family as they make unsettling discoveries about his disappearance, and find out the truth as to why he went. It's something that will test her love for him and her understanding of his mental illness. Producer: Georgia Catt.
02/22/2017HARDtalk’s Sarah Montague speaks to Tzipi Livni, the joint leader of the Zionist Union opposition in Israel's parliament and a former Foreign Minister. For decades many have assumed that the only way there will be peace in the Middle East is when the Palestinians have their own state. But President Trump has made it clear that America is no longer wedded to the idea, whilst Tzipi Livni has in the past stated her support for “two states for two peoples". Could one state where Jews, Muslims and Christians are all treated equally, have a greater chance of delivering peace?

02/21/2017 Today’s topic is a bit different than our previous episodes. We talk about challenging ourselves to take on various self-care and food-related experiments. We also share our experiences with all of the money challenges we’ve done, such as Carrie’s 60-day cash diet and Cait’s two-year shopping ban. Carrie also talks about the success she’s had with the 12-month savings challenge, after having failed at the 52-week savings challenge. Then Cait explains more about her year of slow living experiments, which includes one month of what she calls “slow money”. Finally, we discuss the importance of being open to challenges like these, whether you fail or succeed at them. Every time you challenge yourself, you have the opportunity to grow!
