We visit Jamaica, where things are slowly improving for civil rights, and we hear the harrowing stories of refugees arriving on Europe's southern shores. In a tragic year for music, we look at the life and career of Dead Or Alive's Pete Burns, but in good news catch up with ’80s gender bender, Marilyn. He's back, off drugs and ready to kickstart his career. Plus, Josh Thomas talks about life on his hit TV show, Please Like Me. Harvey Fierstein talks Kinky Boots and why he makes bad television!
