Life imitating art?

It took ages to get home today: horrific traffic and necessary detour. After a busy day and a lengthy after-school meeting, the tv was beckoning.
Two programmes struck a chord with me. Phil and Kirstie's 'Location x3' was helping a family on a limited budget find the right family home close to extended family for childcare purposes. If only.
That big shoulder-pad wearing, northern lady (Hilary?), from 'Dragon's Den' was presenting a really interesting programme on career women and why they still aren't as numerous/successful as men in the boardroom. She visited Norway which has a really progressive, gender-balanced approach to maternity/paternity leave, childcare and supporting working parents. Mentally, I have booked my one-way ticket...
