Viv Albertine, Southbank Centre's Queen Elizabeth Hall reopens, BBC Three controller Damian Kavanagh

Viv Albertine was the guitarist in the cult punk band The Slits and a key player in British counter culture before working as a film maker and launching a solo career. Her new memoir, To Throw Away Unopened, unpicks family secrets which shaped her childhood and her early creative influences. This book begins when she is at the launch party for her hugely successful first book Clothes, Clothes, Clothes, Music, Music, Music, Boys, Boys, Boys and her sister calls with news that their mother is dying. After a two-year £35m refurbishment, the Queen Elizabeth Hall and the Purcell Room on London's Southbank re-open this week. The architect Richard Battye and Gillian Moore, Director of Music at the Southbank, give Samira a guided tour of the Brutalist buildings, which have been updated to cater for an even wider range of music, dance and performance for the 21st century. Damian Kavanagh, the Controller of BBC Three, discusses how the platform is different online to on air, considers why it has been a success with younger audiences, and what this means for the future of television. Plus, we gauge the public reaction to Tracey Emin's new artwork, named I Want My Time With You, unveiled at St Pancras Station in London today. Presenter : Samira Ahmed Producer : Dymphna Flynn.…read more
