The former Archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey, adds his voice to those critical of the behaviour of our elected officials. The Luton MP Margaret Moran defends her claims on a third house in Southampton, based 100 miles away from her constituency. Major Phil Packer completed the London Marathon after 13 days, on foot, with crutches. Gill Hicks lost her legs below the knee in the London terror attacks. They share their experiences. And to mark the announcement that the South Bank Show is to end, the thoughts of cellist Julian Lloyd Webber, who was part of the band that provided the famous opening track for the show. He plays it, once more, for us. Journalist Carole Thatcher, historian Tristram Hunt and comedian Miles Jupp review the papers. The winner of the Broadcasting House Spoon Competition is Gina Holbrook from Manchester; the correct answer is 'the radio'.
