Joan Bakewell talks to Ian Mc Ewan and reflects with him on how belief and philosophy have influenced his personal life and professional career. He talks about his ideas on rationalism and faith and looks back at the contrast between his warm memories of the Islamic culture he knew growing up in Libya and the Islamism he sees today which he believes talks of hatred and is against free speech.

Producer: Clair Jaquiss.
