Rik Mayall; Folk Art; TV soaps; Prince Buthelezi on Zulu; John Tusa

With Matthew d'Ancona. A tribute to the Young Ones and Black Adder actor Rik Mayall whose death was announced today; a review British Folk Art at Tate Britain, a collection of mostly unknown art from local museums round the country. Sir John Tusa describes his vision of the current state of the arts in the UK and sets our the range of leadership skills needed by those who run arts bodies. On the 50th anniversary of the film Zulu, Matthew talks to Prince Buthelezi who played his own great grandfather King Cetshwayo in the story of the battle at Rorke's Drift between 150 British soldiers and 4,000 Zulu warriors, and how at a time of apartheid restrictions the film set was a non-racist one. Plus, we consider the current storylines of EastEnders and Coronation Street where a murder on each show has increased viewing figures to over 8 million on some nights. Coronation Street Producer Stuart Blackburn and TV executive Mal Young, who has overseen programmes including EastEnders, discuss the mechanics of executing a big storyline. Presenter : Matthew d'Ancona Producer : Dymphna Flynn.…read more
