Presented by John Wilson.

John talks to Lily Allen ahead of the release of her second album, It's Not Me It's You.

The American TV drama series Generation Kill depicts the true story of the first 40 days of the Iraq war as experienced by marines of the US 1st Reconnaissance Battalion ('First Recon'). John talks to three of those involved: the writer Ed Burns, one of the show's directors, Susanna White, and Sgt Rudy Reyes, who plays himself in the series.

With relations between Iran and the UK remaining very strained, John travels to that country with Neil MacGregor, director of the British Museum. Once there, they gain rare and unusually close access to some of Iran's historical treasures from the 17th century as part of the preparations for an exhibition at the British Museum.
