Our correspondent, Hugh Schofield, reports on the French love affair with tea. We'll have the final chapter for Adrian Mole as a tribute to Sue Townsend.

We've news of the elections in Turkey and a planning dispute in the Lake District. This week's quiz is brought to you by the medium of opera, and a listener rescues Alistair Cooke's Letters from America from a muck spreader. Following on from our discussion of political dynasties last week, we're looking at why we follow in our parent's footsteps - and hear one shipbuilder's tale. And with Gay Marriage, and Conscious Uncoupling in the news, we'll put marriage under the spotlight. And the papers are reviewed by Penny Mordaunt MP, Bim Adewunm, and Kevin Maguire.
