A couple of weeks back Radio Scotland's Fred MacAulay and Dougie Vipond paddled a kayak the length of the Caledonian Canal in aid of Sport Relief. They braved the - literally - frozen elements over three days and nights. It was filmed for TV, the programme is called Up a Long Creek and is on BBC One Scotland Wednesday 17 March at 2100.

On Monday's Book Cafe crime writer Louise Welsh treated Clare English to a personal tour of her study and revealed insights - not to mention a rather choice bookcase - into her working life as a writer. You can listen to the programme and hear their conversation about Louise's writing process.
