Booker shortlisted writer Lloyd Jones discusses the links between his new novel Hand Me Down World - a story about an illegal immigrant trying to find her son which is told by the people she meets - and his best selling book Mr Pip, which has now become a schools set text.

Peter Asher, who ran the Apple Records label for The Beatles, recalls the birth of the label, and the acts he signed, including singer-songwriter James Taylor. He also reflects on whether business disagreements rather than musical differences broke up The Beatles.

Can replicas replace seeing historic objects in museums ? As a display of replica works from Tutankhamum's tomb opens in Manchester - museum consultants John Williams and Giles Waterfield debate the pros and cons.
