Gabriela Rodriguez, Sir Nicholas Grimshaw, Andrea Levy tribute

Roma, the black and white Mexican film about a young domestic worker in Mexico City in the 1970s, won Best Film at the Baftas on Sunday and is up for the same at the Oscars. The film’s producer, Gabriela Rodriguez, talks about the background to director Alfonso Cuarón’s personal project which draws on his own childhood, and discusses their working relationship. The death has been announced of the acclaimed author Andrea Levy. Her fiction, including the Orange Prize-winning Small Island and the Man Booker-longlisted and recently televised The Long Song, chronicled the experience of generations from the Caribbean who lived through slavery and emigration. Her friend and fellow writer Louise Doughty pays tribute. The architect Sir Nicholas Grimshaw’s buildings include the Eden Project, the International Terminal at Waterloo Station and the National Space Centre in Leicester. He is one of a group of architects including Terry Farrell, Richard Rogers and Norman Foster who became the leading architects of the late 20th century not just in Britain but around the world. He discusses his long career in the week that he's been awarded the 2019 Royal Gold Medal by the Royal Institute of British Architects.
