Noel Gallagher discusses his new album.

Noel Gallagher discusses his new album. Plus Zimbabwean poet Togara Muzanenhamo, a review of Surrealism in Egypt at Tate Liverpool, and is new musical Tiger Bay the next Les Mis?

Noel Gallagher, former songwriter and guitarist for Oasis, discusses his new album Who Built The Moon? He tells us why he chose to go solo after the break-up of the band and discusses his ongoing estrangement from his brother Liam.

There are tanks on the streets of Harare, from there Togara Muzanenhamo talks about the life, and role, of the poet in Zimbabwe today. He reads poetry inspired by the farm where he lives and works.

Surrealism is very much thought of as a European art movement but a new exhibition at Tate Liverpool, Surrealism in Egypt: Art et Liberté 1938 - 1948, calls that into question. Anna Somers Cocks, founding editor and current chairman of The Art Newspaper, reviews.

Tiger Bay, written by Daf James and Michael Williams, is a new musical set in Cardiff's multi-ethnic docks in the early 20th Century, staged by the Wales Millennium Centre in conjunction with Cape Town Opera. Could this be the Welsh Les Mis? Jude Rogers gives her verdict.

Spark joy tidying; leaving Liberty; passing music taste onto kids; cafe run by older women

Japan's expert declutterer Marie Kondo, Shami Chakrabarti steps down from Liberty, inheriting your parents' musical taste, and a cafe that is staffed mainly by women over 60.

Japan's professional cleaner Marie Kondo makes a living out of transforming people's messy homes into spaces of beauty, peace and inspiration. Her method is called KonMari and her secret is to focus on what brings joy, not what you want to get rid of. Jenni asks Marie about her so-called life-changing tidying technique.

Shami Chakrabarti talks about her decision to step down as Director of the civil rights organisation Liberty. Three years ago she was named as one of the top 100 women in Britain on the first Woman's Hour Power List.

As part of Woman's Hour's series Women in One, Abigail Hollick goes to Liverpool to ask women personal questions. Today she talks to a woman about being widowed after 57 years of marriage.

Archive feature - Reporter Judi Herman visited Nana Cafe in Hackney, London which was staffed by volunteer older women, putting a lifetime of cooking and nurturing skills to use.

Music journalists Jude Rogers and Mark Sutherland discuss whether we can or should pass our musical taste down to our children.

Presenter: Jenni Murray.
