Moon and Me creator Andrew Davenport, diversity in opera

Moon and Me is the new CBeebies programme by Andrew Davenport, creator of the award-winning shows Teletubbies and In the Night Garden. He discusses how his story of a doll, Pepi Nana, and the baby in the moon who travels to her doll house to tell stories and have adventures, was inspired by tales of toys that come to life when nobody is looking. Why are some musicians and writers labelled 'the voice of a generation'? Kate Mossman from The New Statesman and books journalist Sarah Shaffi discuss what characteristics earn artists this label, if it’s a blessing or a curse, and who they think represent generations today or in the past. As English National Opera chief Stuart Murphy says opera has a problem with diversity and announces a strategy for nurturing BAME talent, Opera Now editor Ashutosh Khandekar and composer Shirley Thompson discuss the issue of representation in opera.
