Jonathan Pryce, Far from the Madding Crowd, Ronnie Wood, Frances Bacon

With John Wilson. Jonathan Pryce - whose roles have ranged from King Lear to The Engineer in Miss Saigon - discusses playing Shylock in Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice, a Globe Theatre production in which Jessica is played by Pryce's own daughter. He also tells John why, despite his dislike of fantasy series, he took on the role of the High Sparrow in Game of Thrones. The new film adaptation of Thomas Hardy's classic novel Far From the Madding Crowd, starring Carey Mulligan, is reviewed by Hardy's biographer Claire Tomalin. With the news today that two self-portraits by Francis Bacon are going on public display for the first time after being rediscovered in a private collection prior to their auction, we ask Oliver Barker, Sotheby's Senior International Specialist in Contemporary Art, what we should bid for a bit of Bacon. Plus guitarist Ronnie Wood on the recently discovered diary he wrote when he was 17 and playing with The Birds, 10 years before he joined the Rolling Stones. A limited edition facsimile of the diary is about to be published (£495), called How Can It Be? A Rock & Roll Diary. Ronnie Wood looks back over the events of 50 years ago and the characters he mixed with including Eric Clapton, Keith Moon and Pete Townshend. Producer: Ella-mai Robey.…read more
