Toby Jones - Don't Forget the Driver, Shazam!, Bach Passions

Toby Jones tells us about turning his hand to writing for the new six part BBC2 TV series, Don’t Forget The Driver. It's a dark and poignant comedy about Brexit Britain, set in a coach company in Bognor Regis. The latest DC comics film Shazam! flies into cinemas this week. Originally published as a comic strip in 1939, it's the story of Billy Batson, a normal 14-year-old who is given the ability to transform into an adult superhero just by uttering the magic word “Shazam!”. Film critic Larushka Ivan Zadeh will tell us whether or not it's any good. At Easter, choirs across the country prepare to perform Bach’s St John and St Matthew Passions. We explore the significance of these intense and monumental works. Kirsty is joined by director Peter Sellars, who is staging the St John Passion at London’s Royal Festival Hall conducted by Sir Simon Rattle, and music historian Hannah French. 6 April Tewkesbury Abbey – St John Passion – City of Birmingham Choir 7 April Royal Festival Hall – St Matthew Passion – Bach Choir 13 April Kings Place London - St Matthew Passion - Feinstein Ensemble 14 April Plymouth Guildhall – St Matthew Passion - Plymouth Philharmonic Choir 14 April Merton College Oxford – St Matthew Passion 14 April Durham Cathedral – St John Passion 14 April Tremeirchion Church St Asaph – St Matthew Passion 16 April St Georges Bristol – St Matthew Passion – Ex Cathedra 17 April Salisbury Cathedral – St Matthew Passion 18 April Aberdeen Music Hall – St Matthew Passion – Dunedin Consort 19 April Coventry Cathedral – St John Passion 19 April Leeds Minster – St John Passion 19 April The Queens Hall Edinburgh – St Matthew Passion – Dunedin Consort Presenter: Kirsty Lang Producer: Oliver Jones…read more
