If you have 15 minutes free at 3.45pm today and at the same time all this week (though hopefully it will also be available via the BBC's Listen Again facility), tune in to BBC Radio 4 to listen to Zoe Williams talking about homeworking. The blurb goes: "Journalist Zoe Williams begins her quest to get privileged access into the often secret world of the home-worker, comparing notes on the perks and the pitfalls of working where you live and finds out what really goes on behind the net curtains during office hours without the watercooler to gather around." Wednesday's programme promises: "Swapping tips on how to cope when the divide between work and home becomes blurred", Thursday's "'Flexibility' and 'work-life balance' are buzzwords and phrases of the day, but is it really in your best interest to work from home?" and Friday's "Looking into the future. Will we all be doing it soon? Will the policy-makers look after us if we do? And will we really be able to give up the gossip at the watercooler?"
