James Walton hosts another series of the book-based panel show. This episode's Author of the Week is former poet laureate, Sir John Betjeman.

Sebastian Faulks is joined by children's author, Sue Limb, and John Walsh is joined by Sir Andrew Motion, a previous poet laureate himself, to solve more literary challenges, based on Betjeman's life and work, as posed to them by James Walton.
