Rosemary's Baby at 50, scary movies, James Joyce's daughter Lucia

On the 50th anniversary of the release of the Roman Polanski chiller Rosemary's Baby, critic Kim Newman looks at the film's impact at the time and its influence on the horror genre. And to discuss what makes a scary movie scary Kim is joined by Olivia Howe and Anna Bogutskaya of the Final Girls blog which looks at the role of women in horror films. This weekend sees Bloomsday, Dublin's annual celebration of James Joyce's novel Ulysses. The Joyce family were at the heart of 1930s literary Paris, where his daughter Lucia had romances with sculptor Alexander Calder as well as Samuel Beckett. Lucia Joyce had a promising career as a dancer which was shortlived because of her fragile mental health. After the war she was committed to an asylum in Northamptonshire where she died in 1982. Author Alex Pheby, whose new novel Lucia is inspired by her life, and Irish dance historian Deirdre Mulrooney, discuss the life of Joyce's troubled daughter and her influence on other artists.
