News and conversation about the big stories of the week with Paddy O'Connell.
On today's Broadcasting House, we brought together a Union Baron with a real one to discuss whether it's ever right to strike. Of 1002 members of the public surveyed by ICM for the programme, 36% think the right to stike is unacceptable (with 57% thinking it is acceptable and 7% don't knows). Digby Jones and Bob Crowe had a full and frank exchange of views. And if the planes don't fly and the trains don't leave, why not try Psychogeography, the art of seeing familiar landscape anew? Writer Will Self told us how to walk, and an intrepid rambler, Tom Franklin, put the theory to the test in a live radio experiment. We brought together one trolleybus- obsessed listener with an archive recording of a driver and clippie, and the papers were reviewed by fashion designer Zandra Rhodes, Alain de Botton and John Whiting. And listener Stephen Marchant sent us some pips to make up for the current lack of them at ten o'clock.
