Barbie. 50th Anniversary

Barbie celebrates her 50th anniversary this year. She may be hugely popular across the world but is she any kind of female role model? Does she represent a glamorous female figure which girls try to copy or is she simply a dressing up doll?

Join Kate and Jackie on this week's BBC programme as they discuss some of the controversy surrounding the doll and hear from some other women in London and their thoughts on the iconic doll.

When Barbie first went on sale in 1959, around 350,000 were sold in the first year. How many dolls sell today? Is it:

a) 3 per hour
b) 3 per second
c) 3 per minute

As you can see there is no audio player to listen to, but you can do it on the original page as there is a problem to download it.
