Cabin Pressure star and writer John Finnemore, and Peter Hitchens, columnist and author, talk about the books they love to presenter Harriett Gilbert. Who did murder the Princes in the Tower? For Peter Hitchens Josephine Tey still has the answer, in The Daughter of Time. John Finnemore loves A Landing on the Sun by Michael Frayn, which provokes argument as to whether it is a happy book or a terribly sad one. And Harriett Gilbert chooses something that makes her laugh: What's My Motivation? by Michael Simkins, his self-deprecating memoir of the life of an actor who's never made it to the big time. Producer: Beth O'Dea
