Violinist Nicola Benedetti on ability and hard work

Violinist Nicola Benedetti - who performed at the Ryder Cup closing ceremony and won a Classical Brit award - explained the discipline of practising for hours every day.

She debated with Andrew Neil, Charles Falconer and Michael Portillo about the effort put in by sports stars and politicians - compared to the instant success of those on reality TV programmes.

And the show signed off with Ed Balls' "playing" the piano.

The full programme can be seen by UK viewers on iPlayer for 12 months.
