Saffron, the multi-tasking New Age mum at Number 27, would be lost without Sally, and two doors down at Number 29, Miss Edith Black relies on Sally's help when it comes to sorting out authentic Victorian railings for her lodging house (and dealing with her eccentric lodgers, Ulster-Scots poet Victor McVitie and handsome opera star Fintan Fanning).
Reliable and unflappable, Sally is always there to keep everything in order in this Belfast street. But what will happen to the residents if she decides to leave them?

Author Jazz Vazquez examines the case of the aging actor who plays the role of a washed-up psychoanalyst. Is Jennifer Melfi, the psychoanalyst for mafia boss Tony Soprano, just a bitter, sour former beauty, or does she herself become a psychopath? Lorraine Bracco’s acting is at its worst as she plays the part of the sex-starved analyst who doesn’t provide any remnant of genuine or productive analysis for her client.
Vazquez takes a look at the rape experienced by Melfi on The Sopranos. How does the portrayal of a middle-aged woman’s rape mirror society’s contempt for former beauties who age into empty husks no longer worthy of sexual objectification?

All six series of the BBC radio comedy centred around a village hairdressing salon - plus pilot episode
Based in the little town of Bridgeford, High-Lites salon boasts the most misanthropic hairdresser in Britain: sharp-tongued, mean-minded Bev. With the help of her soft-hearted (though slightly dim) assistant Shirley, she tends to the tresses of a motley crew of local characters. As she cuts their hair, she finds out everything that's going on in their lives - and wastes no time in spreading some gossip of her own...
In the pilot episode, one of her little lies takes on a life of its own - and a dodgy dryer nearly spells disaster. Series 1 finds the salon on the brink of bankruptcy, forcing Bev to take desperate measures to keep it afloat. In HighLites: Retouched, the two stylists go mobile when their premises are shut down by Environmental Health, and in HighLites: Split Ends, Bev tries to undercut her rival, Anton, to secure a lucrative wedding hair gig.
HighLites: Wash and Blow finds the hairdressing duo heading out on a cruise, hoping to drum up a little business below deck. But it's not all plain sailing... In HighLites: Dye Another Day, Bev and Shirl are faced with a huge tax bill, and connive to inherit from a wealthy old man's will. And in HighLites: Natural Bounce, the world's worst hairdressers discover that there's money to be made in fitness, and decide to open a gym above the salon - but is this an expansion too far?
Co-written by Steve Chambers and Phil Nodding, this fast-paced, farcical comedy stars Lorraine Ashbourne as Bev and Rosie Cavaliero as Shirley, with a supporting cast including Marlene Sidaway, Sheila Reid, Angela Lonsdale, Adjoa Andoh, Adam Nagaitis and Joel MacCormack.
