Derry Girls caught Britain by surprise as the breakout comedy hit of 2018. The phenomenon showed teenage joy and hope flourishing against the lurking dread of The Troubles. We're joined by the cast as they confirm they're now bigger than The Beatles ahead of series two and creator Lisa McGee reveals the one thing she learned from writing the show.

PLUS:

-One woman and her iPad are taking a pioneering new approach to helping the marginalised help themselves.

-Elaine Jameson is pounding the streets of Glasgow as Britain’s first digital inclusion officer – helping those without IT skills with applications for things like Universal Credit and housing.

-Is your roast dinner killing you with indoor pollution? We get to the meat of the matter in this week's Fact/Fiction.

-On the Nineties revival, Lucy Sweet talks being broke and living for her weekly fix of ultimate Nineties sitcom Friends. While life might be brighter, the show has become a surprise intergenerational joy

The Big Issue

The Big Issue’s own-brand products support the creation of a range of work-based opportunities for disadvantaged people.
The Big Issue has spent over 27 years at the helm of self-help revolution. It all began with the launch of The Big Issue magazine in 1991, which was created to offer homeless and disadvantaged people the opportunity to earn a legitimate income by selling a magazine on the streets. Since then over 200 million copies magazine have been sold by over 100,000 people. Vendors buy the magazine upfront for £1.25 and sell it on to the public for £2.50, and in doing so each runs their own micro-enterprise. In 2005 Big Issue Invest was launched, with the aim of extending The Big Issue’s mission by financing the growth of social enterprises and charities across the UK. To date the organisation has directly invested in over 350 such organisations, and manages or advises on more than £170 million of social funds.
