Sally Rooney, Trust, Catwalk music, Serena Williams cartoon

The Irish writer Sally Rooney's second novel Normal People, the story of a relationship between two young people from very different backgrounds, has been longlisted for the Man Booker Prize and is winning ecstatic reviews. She talks about structure, being true to her characters, and the pleasure and pressure of praise. TV critic David Butcher, reviews Trust, a new drama investigating the true story of the kidnap of the grandson of one of America's wealthiest families, the Getty's. Donald Sutherland stars as oil magnate, John Paul Getty, who after the death of his son looks to his grandson to take over the family business. But after a perceived shame he brings to the family name Sutherland's Getty turns him away, leading to his grandson's eventual kidnap on the streets of Rome. London Fashion Week starts on Friday and Front Row takes a close look at how the catwalk uses music to its advantage, and the close and enduring relationship between music and fashion. John Wilson talks to Jeremy Healy, who puts music on the runway for John Galliano at Maison Margiela, and to Katie Baron, author of the book Fashion and Music.
