Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw, Téa Obreht, Kathy Hinde, Dalia Stasevska

We review the ninth in the Fast & Furious franchise and its first spin-off, Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham as the eponymous duo. Larushka Ivan-Zadeh considers the lasting success of one of the biggest franchises in the history of cinema which has amassed almost $5bn worldwide. The youngest person and first woman to be a principal guest conductor with the BBC Symphony Orchestra is Finnish conductor Dalia Stasevska. We speak to her ahead of her Proms debut to ask why Finland produces such a high number of conductors and how she's related to the great Finnish composer Sibelius. Life in the American West in the 18th century is tough - a young man on the run hides among the US Camel Corps, while a woman desperate for water awaits her husband and sons' return to their parched homestead. Orange Prize for Fiction winner, Téa Obreht discusses her second novel, Inland. Recorded sounds from the blanket bogs of Caithness and Sutherland’s Flow Country are the main inspiration of Kathy Hinde's new sound installation.
