Parts 2 & 3: Do We Send Too Many People To University?
First up: Do we send too many people to university? A-level results are out today but high fees mean nearly one in 10 students is opting out, preferring to find a job rather than go to uni. Is that something we should celebrate? After all, almost half of recent graduates say that university didn't prepare them for the working world. And that's the ones who could find work. Or is going to university about more than just getting a good job?

After taking plenty of calls on that it's over to Anna for the rest of today's headlines.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Irresponsible To Give Kids Booze?
Then: Is it irresponsible to give kids booze? A new study reckons the younger you introduce your children to alcohol, the more likely it is they’ll grow up to be problem drinkers, drug users, and have promiscuous sex. But most European countries let youngsters drink wine at the dinner table from an early age and they’ve got far fewer binge drinkers than us. So are you a bad parent if you give your child a tipple?

Part 6: Does Plastic Surgery Prey On The Vulnerable?
Moving on: Does plastic surgery prey on the vulnerable? In the wake of the PIP implant scandal, health chiefs are looking at ways to protect us from cowboy clinics - by banning buy-one-get-one-free offers and irresponsible ads, for example. Do you think there's a problem? If you're old enough to go under the knife, aren't you old enough to be making an informed decision? Or do authorities need to protect us from unscrupulous surgeons who prey on our insecurities?

Part 7: Why Can't British Men Dress For Summer?
And finally: Why don't British men know how to dress for summer? Whether it's Nick Clegg's sandals, David Cameron's work attire or Peter Stringfellow's budgie smugglers, it seems the sun scorches fellas' fashion philosophy. How should a man dress for summer - what are the dos and don'ts?
