We talk to the father of the Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit, held captive for more than five years, but soon to be released in a prisoner swap. He tells us it's been a 'continuous nightmare' and is worried about the impact the ordeal will have had on his son.

We hear from Chile, one year on from the rescue of 33 trapped miners - a story which captured the attention of the world.

Jamie Stangroom has some more New Music, and the Film Phone-In celebrates movies with a money theme.

Plus, we hear what's making the news in Japan, Zambia and Bangladesh.
