One Night in Miami, Kate Tempest, Glam Rock, Remembering Andrzej Wajda

Director Kwame Kwei-Armah and writer Kemp Powers discuss their new production of One Night in Miami, a fictional account of the night in 1964 when boxer Cassius Clay chose to celebrate his world heavyweight victory in a hotel room with activist Malcolm X, singer Sam Cooke and football star Jim Brown. Poet, rapper and writer Kate Tempest describes her new album Let Them Eat Chaos, the follow-up to her Mercury-shortlisted album Everybody Down. It's a long poem, written for live performance, which centres on seven residents of a London street all awake at 4:48am. The Oscar-winning Polish film director Andrzej Wajda has died at the age of 90. During the war he joined the Polish resistance, and then studied to be a painter, before entering the Lodz Film School. Wajda's films chart the history of Poland through the wartime Warsaw Uprising, the suppression of the Solidarity movement, the fall of Communism and joining the EU. Ian Christie, professor of Film and Media History, looks back at the director's career. Shock and Awe: A History of Glam Rock is music journalist Simon Reynolds's new book. He charts the outrageous styles, gender-fluid sexual politics and retro-future sounds that came to define the first half of the 1970s, from Bolan to Bowie and Suzi Quatro to Roxy Music. Presenter: John Wilson Producer: Angie Nehring.…read more
