Rebecca Front

Aasmah Mir and the Reverend Richard Coles are joined by Rebecca Front and Allegra McEvedy. Featuring the inheritance tracks of The Archers actor David Troughton.

Aasmah Mir and the Reverend Richard Coles are joined by Bafta award winning actor Rebecca Front to talk about being funny, playing dislikeable characters and claustrophobia.

Chef and writer Allegra McEvedy has been cooking professionally for over 20 years, in London and the USA. She set up food chain LEON, is a Patron of the Fairtrade foundation, writes food columns and cookery books and last year was a judge on CBBC's Bafta winning Junior Bakeoff. She'll be cooking up something for Mothering Sunday (recipe below) and reflecting on her own mother who passed away when she was 17.

Listener Henry Iddon contacted us about his term as artist in residence at Forton Services on the M6 in Lancashire. He joins us to share his love and fascination of this essential and iconic landmark.

Listener Hannah Velten's brother Christian went missing in Africa 13 years ago whilst following in the footsteps of Mungo Park, the Scottish explorer. Wanting to keep his memory alive, Hannah started a blog where friends and family could share their memories. This inspired her to set up a company to record memories for people. She'll tell her story to Richard and Aasmah.

We'll hear the inheritance tracks of The Archers actor David Troughton who chose Elgar's variations on an original theme, opus 36, the enigma Nimrod and It must be Love by Labi Siffre.

We hear your Thankyous, and JP meets a couple who met over mutual admiration for Ipswich Town Football Club.
