Samira Ahmed takes a tour of the Haworth Parsonage to consider the closed world of the Brontë siblings, and the how their imaginative childhood games fed into their writing. Novelists AS Byatt and Sophia McDougall, and actor Tom Burke who plays Mr Rochester in the new Radio 4 adaptation of Jane Eyre, discuss the enduring appeal of the Brontës' characters. Michael Carlson reviews Truth, starring Robert Redford and Cate Blanchett, in which an investigative team at CBS News comes under fire for possible inaccuracies.
