Jane Horrocks, High-Rise, Russia and the Arts, Remembering Sylvia Anderson

In If You Kiss Me, Kiss Me, opening at the Young Vic, Jane Horrocks and a band of musicians and dancers reinterpret a selection of hits from some of the Northern male artists of the 1970s and 80s. Jane and her director, Aletta Collins, talk about how they put the show together. High-Rise is a dystopian thriller based on JG Ballard's 1975 novel, starring Tom Hiddleston and Jeremy Irons. Mark Eccleston reviews. 'Russia and the Arts: The Age of Tolstoy and Tchaikovsky' explores how Russian portraiture enjoyed a golden age between the late 1860s and the First World War. While Tolstoy was publishing Anna Karenina and Tchaikovsky was taking Russian music to new heights, Russian art was developing a new self-confidence. Curator Dr Rosalind Blakesley shows us round this new exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. Sylvia Anderson, the co-creator of Thunderbirds, has died aged 88. She invented the show with her late husband back in the Sixties and also voiced the character of Lady Penelope. Mary Turner, who created the puppets, and David Graham, the voice of Parker, remember the puppeteer and television producer who worked in the industry for more than fifty years. Presenter: Samira Ahmed Producer: Angie Nehring.…read more
