Sorry, this episode is not currently available to watch on Demand 5.

Find out why

Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Let Under-13s Use Facebook?
That’s what founder Mark Zuckerberg thinks. He reckons social networking sites are educational. Is he right? If so, do the educational benefits outweigh the risks from online bullying, or sexual predators? Around 40% of nine to 12 year olds already use sites like Bebo, Myspace and Facebook anyway. Should they be allowed to log on legitimately?

We’ll have a word or two on that before we go to these three news sponges for the rest of the day’s headlines.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Ban Smoking Outdoors?
Then: Should smoking outdoors be banned in the UK? I ask because, as of Monday, New Yorkers caught smoking in outdoor spaces like parks and beaches could be fined $50. Should we do the same here? Or would that be yet another attack on those who enjoy a perfectly legal habit? What do you say?

Part 6: Kids Or Partner: Who Comes First?
After that: Who should come first, your kids or your partner? The daughter of Lord of the Flies author William Golding reckons her mum and dad only had eyes for each other. She says they had no love left for her. Sure, it’s important to keep your romance alive after having kids. But should your other half come first? Should you lavish the same attention on your partner as you do on your kids? You tell me.

Part 7: Great Sex Or A Full Head Of Hair?
And finally: Men - would you rather have a good sex life or a full head of hair? A recent survey says hair just clinches it, but I’m not so sure. Would you baldies out there give up nookie to get your barnet back? And ladies - would you rather your fella had a lion’s mane or was a tiger in the sack?

    It is illegal to drop cig ends. My Uncle did,nt smoke but died from the smoke of others, he was a long distance coach driver, when they could be smoked within. Why not ban them? Tax? If discovered today, tobacco would be banned.

    Smoking should be banned theres nothing worse than having to walk through a cloud of smoke to get in somewhere and i wouldnt mind because they stand on the door step when you open the door the smoke comes so what the point, so yes banning is an excellent idea

    Smoking outside should be banned. Whats the point of smoking outside because as soon as open the doors the smoke comes in because there keeping dry or out of the wind. And you have to walk through a cloud of smoke to get into a place which is really annoying. BAN IT.

    I am a playworker and I find that children are no longer children. They need to play and its parents responsibility and society to encourage this. They are children and not even for long and i find it dis heartening that technology over rules climbing tree's.

    There are three main issues with facebook for the under 13s. 1. The issue of grooming and this can happen over a number of years not months. 2. the amount of time spent and wasted on facebook by youngsters. 3. cyberbullying and this can even be in the form of friends not being mentioned in messages and then that child feels isolated and excluded. It is extremely dangerous and i feel that any parent allowing this is being irresponsible!!!!

    Smoking shouldn't be banned out side because if u have children u cnt smoke inside, if that's the case might as well ban cars and stuff
