Mental health and the novel:
Nathan Filer talks about his Costa first novel award-winner The Shock of the Fall, a novel showing a young man's development of schizophrenia following the sense of guilt he suffers after experiencing his brother's untimely death.
Vicky Williamson of Sheffield University, Martyn Evans of Durham University and Professor Tom Griffiths of Newcastle University discuss auditory hallucinations. Why do they happen and how can they be surpressed? Claudia hears about the experiences of ear worms and the relentless music people who suffer from auditory hallucinations can hear.
