UNDER THE banner "A Beginner's Guide to the Stone Age", anthropologist Richard Rudgley - best known for his pioneering work on drug use in the ancient world - argues that Stone Age people were more sophisticated than we give them credit for. Rudgley discusses all this with Lorraine Kelly (11am Talk Radio). Oddly, this show sits in the middle of "English Day" on Talk Radio; highlights include Scott Chisholm (9am Talk Radio) quizzing Jeremy Paxman on Englishness, and Mike Allen (10pm Talk Radio) looking at what makes the perfect English gentleman. Gentleman and keen violinist Sherlock Holmes (right) is the last fictional character to be examined in this week's Sound Stories (11am R3).
