James Runcie And David Olusoga20190324The author of the Grantchester Mysteries, James Runcie joins Kate and Jason to tell them about the latest book in the series that is published on the 21st of March. This time James has written a prequel which follows the life, loves and losses of the main character, Canon Sidney Chambers in post-war London. 'The Road to Grantchester' also explores what motivated Sidney to become a priest and why he feels the need to involve himself in criminal investigation. The books were inspired by James’s father, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Robert Runcie.

Historian David Olusoga is back with a new series of 'A House in Time' as he explores the history of a home in Ravensworth Terrace in Newcastle. David traces its residents’ stories over 200 years and reveals real-life drama from burglary to bigamy. The current owners of the house, Damian and Suzi, know little of their home’s history, but with its grand fireplaces and lofty proportions, the house offers a tantalising glimpse into the past.

Ruby Wax20190317Following her own experience with depression, Ruby Wax delved into the working of the human mind as an Oxford University academic. With a Master's degree in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy behind her, Ruby's latest book, 'How To Be Human' sees her collaborating with a Buddhist monk and a neuroscientist. They promise to answer every question you've ever had about: evolution, thoughts, emotions, the body, addictions, relationships, kids, the future and compassion.

Rachel Mann is an Anglican priest and poet. She has based her Lent book, ‘From Now On’, on ‘The Greatest Showman’. Rachel says the vibrant world of the circus and the film’s catchy songs may seem far removed from the traditional values of Lent but it explores some universal themes that can be found in the Bible and our own lives including home, acceptance and rejection, community and family.
