Grant is joined in the Big Blue Tent by Queen's Dr Brian May and Professor Roger Taylor.

Brian May, best known as the lead guitarist of the rock group Queen, is at the Edinburgh book festival to launch an illustrated biography of the Victorian Scottish photographer George Washington Wilson. He joins Grant on the sofa to talk about his passion project, which involves sharing his collection of Victorian stereo photographs, which is one of the largest collections in the world.

Miles Kane of the Last Shadow Puppets and the Rascals has just released his third solo album Coup de Grace. He's travelled up especially to perform for Grant's audience in the Big Blue Tent.

We hear about Birds of Paradise and National Theatre of Scotland co-production My Left Right Foot - the Musical about a local am-dram society under pressure to comply with the equalities agenda who come up with a cunning plan to create a gripping show starring 'the disabled' by performing Oscar-winning 'My Left Foot'? -without any disabled actors.
