Presented by Jenni Murray. The actress Tamsin Greig on her new film 'Tamara Drewe'. The latest statistics on the teacher workforce show that almost one in four primary schools in England have no male teachers - we look at what the impact of this and what can be done? Iris Murdoch died in 1999 with 26 novels to her name and numerous literary awards - 11 years on from her death, how does her reputation as a novelist stand? And there's live music from American singer Nell Bryden.
