Joel Meyerowitz, The Girl on the Train on stage, the Famous Women Dinner Service

As he celebrates his 80th birthday, photographer Joel Meyerowitz looks back at his career which is the focus of his new book of photos, Where I Find Myself. It features his early work as a street photographer in New York in the '60s, his images of Ground Zero immediately after the 9/11 attacks, and his most recent still lifes in Tuscany. In a unique commission to open the 2018 Charleston Festival, novelist Ali Smith will be performing a piece of creative prose inspired by the Famous Women Dinner Service, a work of 50 ceramic plates featuring the portraits of historical female figures, produced by Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant in 1932. Kirsty discusses the significance and the artistry of the dinner service with Ali Smith, Darren Clarke, curator at Charleston, and art dealer Robert Travers. The Girl on the Train, the psychological thriller by Paula Hawkins, became an overnight bestseller and was later adapted into a film starring Emily Blunt as the troubled Rachel who wakes up with a hangover and an uneasy feeling she's seen something she shouldn't have seen. Now it has been adapted for the stage and opens at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds with Jill Halfpenny as Rachel. Theatre Critic Nick Ahad has been to see it. As Hugh Grant stars as the disgraced MP Jeremy Thorpe in the BBC drama A Very English Scandal, TV critic Emma Bullimore charts the evolution of Hugh Grant's career, from romcoms to recent darker roles.
