Oliver Knussen remembered, Natalie Dormer, Life modelling

The acclaimed composer and conductor, Oliver Knussen, has died aged 66. He began composing at just six years-old and as well as continuing to write music, went on to conduct around the world and in 1994 he was made a CBE. He was perhaps best known for the operatic adaptation of the children's classic Where the Wild Things Are. Mark Anthony Turnage and Roger Wright pay tribute. A reimagining of the iconic Australian novel, Picnic at Hanging Rock, begins on BBC2 this week. The six episodes explore the mysterious disappearances of three schoolgirls and their governess on Valentine's Day in 1900. Natalie Dormer speaks to John about her starring role in the drama, and about her other roles portraying strong women in The Tudors and Game of Thrones. What's it like being a life model and what makes drawing from life a unique and important discipline for artists? We speak to professional life model Rachel Welch, artist Jonathan Yeo and tutor Charlotte Mann, as Quentin Crisp's autobiography The Naked Civil Servant which depicts his own experiences as a life model turns 50. Presenter: John Wilson Producer: Ben Mitchell.…read more
