Women In Technology
The technology sector shows year on year that there are 3,000 tech firms based at "Tech City" in East London. However, most of the faces on the entrepreneurial start up scheme appear to be mostly male. Reporter Zaneta Denny went to investigate women in tech.
Christmas is a time of happiness and joy for most people around the capital. For some, however, it is a time of sadness and depression. Reporter Eliot Goward headed up to High Barnet to meet members of a bipolar self-help group who are trying to raise awareness of mental health issues, especially at this time of year.
