Adam talks with British film maker Lorna Tucker about her documentary profile of fashion designer Vivienne Westwood and how she felt when Westwood publicly disowned it. Lorna also explains how she found herself homeless as a teenager and the struggle with addiction that ensued; experiences that informed her new documentary Someone's Daughter, Someone's Son, which considers what can be done to better tackle homelessness.

ST MUNGO'S - ENDING HOMELESSNESS, REBUILDING LIVES
Rough sleeping can become a relentless cycle that’s incredibly difficult to escape from. St Mungo’s is one of the only organisations whose frontline workers are out, every night, to bring people in from the streets.
The Connection at St Martin’s works with people sleeping rough to move away from, and stay off, the streets of London. We with them as they recover from life on the streets and move towards a meaningful, fulfilling future away from homelessness and into shelter.
For someone at risk of homelessness, our support and advice can be the difference between finding emergency accommodation or spending a night in their car.
Shelter's campaigning work can mean the difference between being powerless or seeing legislative changes to fight unfair evictions, rogue landlords and dangerous housing.
