Simon Jenkins proposes Edwin Lutyens, architect of New Delhi and the Cenotaph.

Sir Simon Jenkins proposes Edwin Lutyens, architect of New Delhi and the Cenotaph. With Matthew Parris and the architect's great-granddaughter, Jane Ridley. From September 2011.

If Edwin Lutyens, the architect behind New Delhi, the Cenotaph, and the British embassy in Washington, sounds an austere, imperial figure then think again. He was fun and almost child-like - he loved to dance and doodle, and he told terrible jokes. But his great grand daughter, Jane Ridley, believes it was Lutyens' shockingly miserable marriage that inspired his greatest work. Simon Jenkins, former editor of The Times and current head of the National Trust, chooses Lutyens primarily for the quality of his work. But he also recognises that the grimness of the marriage - Emily Lutyens fell in love with Krishnamurti - spurred the architect onto greater heights. Presenter Matthew Parris initially questions whether the quality of Lutyens' sex life really needs to play a part in this tale, then declares himself underwhelmed by much of the work. Expert Jane Ridley is the author of the Architect and his Wife, and the producer is Miles Warde.

Mark Dowd discusses the best way for us to remember those who have fought and died in war.

As we approach the centenary of the end of the First World War, Mark Dowd discusses the best way to remember those who have fought and died in wars.

On the 11th November at 11am it will be exactly 100 years since the end of the First World War.

There will be the usual Ceremony of Remembrance at the Cenotaph on Whitehall when the nation honours those who lost their lives in two world wars and more recent military conflicts. Is this the best way for us to remember war? Do acts of Remembrance have any relevance today and should religion play a part in these ceremonies? To take a look at these questions, Mark Dowd is joined by a panel of experts and pupils from Loreto Sixth Form College in Manchester.
