Janice Forsyth talks to classical trumpeter Alison Balsom, the Ting Tings introduce their new single, and writer Steven Knight discusses the second series of Peaky Blinders.

Janice talks to award winning trumpet player Alison Balsom, who is bringing the instrument to new audiences.

Luminate, Scotland's festival of creative ageing, is now underway. Janice hears about two very different productions which tackle the issues of ageing, care homes and sheltered housing in very different ways. Nothing Personal by Linda Campbell is a comedy inspired by her own personal experiences, while Tomorrow by Vanishing Point theatre company takes a more serious approach.

Peaky Blinders is an epic family gangster drama set in the lawless streets of 1920s Birmingham. Series 2 begins this week on BBC2 - Janice talks to its creator Steven Knight.

The Ting Tings tell Janice about their new disco-infused single and album.

And as a film about Victorian socialite Effie Gray opens in cinemas, writer Suzanne Fagence Cooper explains why there's more to her than her failed marriage to John Ruskin.
