Pierre Boulez obituary, Costa Biography winner, Tracy Ullman review; Bolshoi Babylon

The death of one of the 20th century's most important composers and conductors, Pierre Boulez, was announced today.

Today we hear from Andrea Wulf, winner of the Biography category for her historical book The Invention of Nature: The Adventures of Alexander von Humbolt, The Lost Hero of Science, who lived from 1769-1859. Stand-up and writer Meryl O’Rourke reviews Tracey Ullman’s Show which brings the comedian back to British TV screens for the first time in 30 years.
