'I hypnotise my children to get them to behave'

Most parents dream of children who want to do their homework, but what if that dream became a reality?

Lisa Machenberg hypnotises her three children, claiming it's good for them. So much so that they can even self hypnosis and convince their teachers to move their detention! Is this the perfect answer to parenting, or a slippery slope to control your children?

Antidepressants made me acutely psychotic

I lost the powers of speech... I was in a real state, almost in a trance. Two days later I was acutely psychotic. Suddenly I thought nothing mattered.

– Katinka Blackford Newman

Katinka Blackford Newman's life was turned upside down after she was prescribed antidepressants to help cope with a marital break-up.

Within hours she went into a four-day toxic psychosis with violent hallucinations, imagining she had killed her children and ended up attacking herself with a knife.

Katinka is convinced the pills led to a year-long decline, but were they responsible?

We fixed our Dad and cured his Type 2 diabetes

We sat him down and we said to him... we've done this because we don't want to lose you

– Anthony Whitington

What do you do when a family member or loved one won’t listen to your fears over their health? For film-makers Anthony and Ian Whitington - they decided to make their own father a project as they battled to reverse his Type 2 diabetes diagnosis by training him up to take on a 100-mile bike ride and getting him to eat a healthy diet.

But it wasn’t easy. 63 year old Geoff is extremely stubborn, was facing an amputation due to his condition and was diagnosed with kidney cancer shortly after starting his new lifestyle but after 18 months of training with his sons, he completed a 100 mile cycle event last August and has been declared cured of Type 2 diabetes and clear of cancer.

Is your Vauxhall Zafira a fire risk?

It is every driver's worst fear: a faint whiff of smoke enters the cabin of the car, and within a matter of seconds, there's a fire raging away under the bonnet. But that has been the case for hundreds of Zafira B drivers including Sue Freemantle who narrowly escaped death when her car spontaneously burst into flames last September.

And during a Transport Select Committee last week Vauxhall revealed that this problem has been on their raider since 2009. So why has it taken six years for the company to take any action? Alice Beer and Sue Freemantle join us to warn others who may be affected.
