As the final preparations are made for the arrival, in Yorkshire, of the world's most famous cycle race, Front Row comes from Britain's largest county with a special edition dedicated to the first cultural festival to accompany the Tour de France. Kirsty's guests include Maxine Peake on making her stage debut as a playwright with the premiere of Beryl; David Nobbs, the creator of Reginald Perrin, discusses his new novel which is set in a small town in the Pennines; Graham Watson on photographing every Tour de France since 1983, and a visit to the Fields of Vision, a project which has turned farmers' fields into works of art.
