On this week's 'Between the Lines' programme, Andrea is joined by a panel of experts to discuss the recent DCU all Ireland study of over two thousand primary school children on the island of Ireland which has found that one in four kids cannot run properly; one in two cannot kick a ball properly; and less than one in five can throw a ball.

Together they discuss the benefits of a multi-faceted physical education system and look at the changes we may need to make when it comes to how we value physical activity in the lives of our children.
