Joe Stilgoe, Professor Robert Winston and Melvyn Bragg

A ridiculously brainy bunch of guests join Chris in the studio: Professor Robert Winston, Melvyn Bragg and singer, songwriter and pianist Joe Stilgoe.

Today we had a ridiculously brainy bunch of guests joining Chris in the studio, Professor Robert Winston talks about his new pop up Science book for kids and adults who should know this stuff by now, Lord Melvyn Bragg talks about his new BBC 2 documentary 'Melvyn Bragg's Radical Lives' and we had toe tapping tunes courtesy of award winning singer, songwriter and pianist extraordinaire Joe Stilgoe!
