Master of weird and wonderful sounds, Matthew Herbert, explains how following the life of a pig bred for slaughter, can produce some very interesting music. He's the ideal man to take over legendary and newly revived BBC Radiophonic Workshop.

A campaign by a group of High school girls from Drumchapel to stop dawn raids, may seem like strong material for a stage play, but multi-award winning director, Cora Bassett, has taken it one step further, creating a new multi-cultural musical. Cora, and musical collaborator and actor Patricia Panther, tell Clare English about "Glasgow Girls".

And, he may have started his music career a little later in life, but the man who has been serenaded by Ella Fitzgerald , opened for Dionne Warwick, and duetted with Christopher Walkin, has certainly been on an exciting journey. Todd Gordon talks about his new album with the RAF Squadronaires, "Helping The Heroes".
