"For me I think children's book illustration is very exciting because it's the first place where our young people, our next generation, are going to be exposed to artwork.

We're hoping that we have in this exhibition the books that we'll be seeing on the school bookshelf or the library bookshop or the bedroom bookshop tomorrow."

Designers put on fashion show for over 50s

And as striking as some of the designs at last week's London Fashion Week may be, if you're over the age of 50, chances are you wouldn't want to wear them.

But in Essex, the designers of tomorrow are challenging the fashion industry's focus on styles and figures most people find unachieveable. Wesley Smith went to see the designs.

Pathfinder prepares for space launch

A landmark has been reached for space scientists who want to put Einstein's Theory of Relativity to the test. They've been working for more than a decade on a space module which is about to enter its final stages of testing before being propelled 1.5 million kilometres into space.

Known as the LISA Pathfinder, its job is to measure minute waves of gravity. It's said this will open a new pair of eyes for humanity and help us undertsand more about black holes and collapsed stars.

Wesley Smith put on his protective clothing at the lab in Hertfordshire to try to explain more.
