Space scientist Maggie Aderin-Pocock and music producer William Orbit discuss their favourite books with Harriett Gilbert.

Maggie's pick is the disturbing sci-fi classic 'Chocky' by John Wyndham, in which a boy develops an unusual relationship with his imaginary friend.

Harriett's choice further explores the fragilities of our mental health, with a taut story of a woman perilously close to the edge - 'The Trick is to Keep Breathing' by Janice Galloway.

William's book is the Tom Stoppard classic 'Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead', a play which takes place in the wings of Hamlet.

Producer: Toby Field.
