At the tender age of 17 his debut album 'Jake Bugg' sent him into the record books as the youngest solo male to debut at the top of the charts with their first release and the album is fast-approaching sales of one million worldwide. Jake Bugg performs live. For centuries the mystical and rugged landscape of Scotland has inspired artists and musicians alike and musician Hugh Carswell was lured away from London by the Isle of Jura to create his latest album In Chances Of Light. Janice finds out if he misses the city life. The late, great Oscar Marzaroli was considered one of the best Scottish photographers of the twentieth century. New book 'Waiting For The Magic' is published this weekend, featuring the best of Marazoli's work, some unpublished photographs and a collection of commissioned essays. His widow Anne Marzaroli and Professor Robert Crawford drop by discuss Marzaroli's life and work. Martin Sixsmith is a successful author and radio / television presenter who has become the inspiration for new film 'Philomena'. Janice finds out what he thinks of the film and Steve Coogan's depiction of him. Plus, can you achieve your dreams without pushing away the people you love? That is the question at the centre of a very different type of video game based on family relationships. 'The Novelist' focuses on an author who tries to fulfil his ambitions whilst maintaining a healthy family life. Is it possible? Janice talks to writer and gaming fan Charlie Fletcher and creator Kent Hudson comes to us live from San Francisco to explain all.
