JS Bach and the partitas and sonatas for solo violin. She says that her approach to the composer is now very different from the one she took 15 or 20 years ago; that her style is now much more free, allowing the pieces to breathe and rest, instead of being constrained by what has previously been thought of as the Baroque fashion.

Mrs Van Hook:
Daily Telegraph film reviewer and Granta magazine editor Sukhdev Sandhu profiles Michael X, a devout Muslim who played an important part in racial politics in Britain in the 1960s. With anxieties about home-grown terrorists still very much alive, Michael X seems even more significant now than he did then. Drawing on a variety of sources, Sandhu reconstructs his chameleon life, shedding light on an era and its obsessions as well as asking questions about today's multiracial society. Producer Tim Dee
The Double. Janie Dee and Nicholas Farrell explore the disturbing world of ghostly doubles, and the darkness that lurks inside everyone.
