Gavin Hood, Moving to Mars, Salvator Mundi, Winsome Pinnock & Amit Sharma

Gavin Hood, director of Tsotsi and Eye in the Sky, discusses his new film Official Secrets, which stars Keira Knightley as the GCHQ whistleblower who was taken to court by the British government for leaking a top secret email to the press in the lead-up to the Iraq war in 2003. Next week The Louvre Museum in Paris opens a major exhibition on Leonardo da Vinci to commemorate the 500th anniversary of his death. Nearly 120 works will be displayed, with many on loan from collections around the world. However, there is much speculation over whether the world’s most expensive painting, Salvator Mundi, sold for $450m in 2017, will be on show. The painting of Christ, attributed to da Vinci in the last decade, hasn’t been on public display since its sale. Ben Lewis, author of The Last Leonardo, joins John Wilson to discuss. Moving to Mars, the latest exhibition at the Design Museum in London, explores how sending humans to the planet is not just a new frontier for science but also for design. Architect Tara Gbolade reviews the variety of exhibits which include a multisensory experience of the Red Planet and a full-scale prototype habitat. For their latest touring production, Graeae Theatre - the company that puts D/deaf and disabled actors centre stage - has asked Winsome Pinnock to reimagine her play One Under, first staged in 2005. It explores the aftermath of a young man dying under a tube train. Cyrus, the driver, becomes convinced he is his son. John Wilson talks to Winsome Pinnock and the director, Amit Sharma, about the drama. Presenter: John Wilson Producer: Sarah Johnson…read more
