We hear all about the Teaport Trust, a special charity which provides art therapy to children in hospital. And Professor Sir Kenneth Calman joins Clare to explore the importance of art and creativity in the healing process.

One of Edinburgh's most iconic buildings is about to open its doors after a massive refurbishment....we await the grand opening of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.

And Clare welcomes virtuosic concertina player and trad music's key mover and shaker, Simon Thoumire, to the Culture Café, to celebrate Scotland's great traditional musicians.
