Killing Eve, BBC National Short Story Award Shortlist, Ghetts

Killing Eve is the next thing to come from the pen of Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge. It is a thriller, steeped in her stylistic black humour, about a psychopath, played by Jodie Comer, who's pursued by Sandra Oh as an unassuming detective. Audiences in America have loved it, and it's has been nominated for two Emmy Awards, but what will the UK audience make of it? Arts journalist Sophie Wilkinson joins Shahidha to give her verdict. The BBC National Short Story Award is in its 13th year and has a new partner, Cambridge University, along with First Story. Chair of Judges Stig Abell, alongside judge and previous winner KJ Orr, reveal this year's five shortlisted authors in line for the £15,000 prize, ahead of the announcement of the winner in a special edition of Front Row on 2 October. And the first of the shortlisted authors joins Shahidha in the studio. To coincide with the release of his new album, grime star Ghetts is exhibiting a series of artworks to complement each of the record's tracks. Having been at the heart of the grime movement since the very beginning, Ghetts discusses how it has changed as well as how the relationship with his young daughter has been such an inspiration.
