Sir Martin Sorrell, the chief executive officer of WPP Group and one of the biggest names in advertising, talks to Steve Hewlett about Rupert Murdoch's view of the media, the BBC licence fee agreement and advertising's chances of recovering from the economic downturn.

Rupert Murdoch is reportedly set to launch a new US newspaper, called The Daily, which will only be available to read on ipads. New York media commentator Emily Bell and FT journalist Tim Bradshaw discuss whether an ipad-only paper could be a viable alternative to newspapers.

Clare Sambrook has recently won two investigative journalism prizes, the Paul Foot Award and the Bevins prize for her investigation into child detention in the UK. She discusses working for free and her part in securing a promise from the Liberal Democrats to stop detaining the children of asylum seekers.
