More highlights from Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival on Night Waves.

Is Liverpool and English City?
When Boris Johnson accused Liverpool of over-sentimentality following the death of Ken Bigley and Liverpudlians of "wallowing" in their "victim status", he had to visit the city to make a very public apology.

But did the episode simply highlight how different the culture of Liverpool is to the rest of England?  Roger Philips and guests discuss in front of a local, vocal audience at FACT in Liverpool.

Philosophy in Pubs
Night Waves reports from the Free Thinking festival on the group "Philosophy in Pubs".

Free Thinking Film
And writer Linda Grant will be explaining why Costa Gavros's Missing starring Jack Lemmon is her favourite "Free Thinking" film.
