In tonight's programme: A Million Miles from London - former London-dweller and passionate Ulsterman Gerry Anderson visits the Northern Ireland town that is he says the polar opposite of the capital - Strabane; And a visit to London's Scar studios where, all night long, amateur musicians abandon the day job to record music together.

Plus Jonathan Glancey's nightly lucky dip into the London streetmap.

Andrea Levy sadly died of cancer aged 62 in February 2019.
