Presented by Kirsty Lang.

Suranne Jones stars in new TV drama Unforgiven as Ruth Slater, a woman released from prison on license after serving 15 years for the murder of two policemen. Having spent half of her life imprisoned, she now faces the prospect of rebuilding her life whilst being drawn back to the scene of the crime.

Kirsty talks to Andrew Lloyd Webber about his search to find someone to represent the UK in the next Eurovision Song Contest.

Clare Beale, editor of Campaign Magazine, discusses an unusual press ad by Ladbrokes: a mock appeal to the public to help them find the single person who complained about a TV advert featuring a man skydiving with a crisp packet for a parachute.

Kirsty speaks to Benjamin Myers about his novel, Twisted Symmetry, the first of a six-book sequence entitled The Bad Tuesdays. He explains how his former careers as an army officer and as a criminal barrister provided inspiration for a story about three children, Chess, Box and Splinter, who are members of a criminal underclass.
