Culture Secretary Jeremy Wright MP, Radio Breakfast Shows, Chigozie Obioma

The Culture Secretary Jeremy Wright MP, who today gave his ‘Value of Culture’ speech, in which he set out the government’s plans for a multi-million-pound investment in the arts and culture in the UK, discusses his plans to ‘unleash creativity across the nation’. This week the BBC radio schedules saw sweeping change with new presenters at the helm of two breakfast shows. Lauren Laverne takes over from Shaun Keaveny at 6 Music, and Zoe Ball fills the shoes of Chris Evans on the UK’s largest breakfast show on Radio 2. Radio critic Susan Jeffreys reviews both shows, as well as BBC Sounds new true crime style drama podcast, The Case of Charles Dexter Ward. Nigerian author Chigozie Obioma has followed his Man Booker shortlisted novel, The Fisherman, with an epic story narrated by the central character’s guardian spirit, or Chi. He tells Alex how he wanted An Orchestra of Minorities to explore the Igbo belief system in the way that Milton’s Paradise Lost does for Christianity.
