Rita Ora on her six year journey to release her second album Phoenix, following a legal dispute with her record label. The musician, who has also acted in the Fifty Shades film trilogy and been a judge on television talent shows The Voice and The X-Factor, talks to John Wilson about finally being able to release music, song writing and her Albanian heritage. This year’s Bad Sex In Fiction award was won by James Frey and also had an all-male shortlist. So what defines good and bad writing of sex in literature, and why do men seem to be worse at it than women? Novelist Matt Thorne and Rowan Pelling, founding editor of the Erotic Review now of The Amorist, discuss. Unbelievably, Die Hard is 30 years old this year. Stand-up poet Kate Fox considers why this thriller starring Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman is such a classic. Presenter: John Wilson Producer: Sarah Johnson
