Sir Terry Farrell, London's Skyline, Joshua Ferris

Matthew Sweet discusses online identity theft and religious belief with American novelist Joshua Ferris, as he publishes his new novel To Rise Again at a Decent Hour.

As the London Festival of Architecture opens with a debate on whether London needs more tall towers, Matthew talks to Sir Terry Farrell about his report on planning for the government and how he sees the future of London's skyline. In the Free Thinking studio journalist Owen Hatherley; director of urban research institute Create Streets, Nicholas Boys Smith; and architect and past president of RIBA, Angela Brady, discuss how London should look in the future.
