Outspoken Labour backbencher Clare Short talks to Steve Richards about her childhood memories in the poor areas of Birmingham and her time at Catholic school.
Was the feisty politician always a rebel, even as a child? How did she interact with her teachers and fellow pupils? Richards quizzes the Labour MP on her relationship to Catholicism, both as a teenager and today, and asks what it has meant for her views on sex education.
