Stuart Maconie joins Simon to discuss his new book, 'Hope and Glory', looking at events in the 20th century that helped define British life and culture. Events covered in the book include the effect of the First World War on the national psyche, our obsession with the 1966 World Cup and how Live Aid influenced celebrity culture. Plus, there's another Confessor in the dock, and another listener cries for help over their Homework - and there's the latest money, sport and travel updates, brought to you by Rebecca, Matt and Sally.
