Abi Morgan, Rita Dove, British Art Show 8, Zygmunt Miloszewski

Bafta-winning screenwriter Abi Morgan - best known for The Hour, a 2011 cold war espionage drama set in a 1956 television newsroom - discusses her new TV crime drama River, starring Stellan Skarsgård (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) as John River, a brilliant police officer whose genius and fault-line is the fragility of his mind. Every five years, the British Art Show tours the UK to showcase the work of artists who are making an important contribution to the British art scene. This year, British Art Show 8 opens at Leeds Art Gallery and features the works of forty-two artists. Art critic Richard Cork takes a look at this year's show. Rita Dove, the first African American Poet Laureate of America, talks to Kirsty ahead of delivering the Annual Poetry Society Lecture, and explains how poetry can bring hidden histories to light, using the case of the mixed race violinist George Bridgetower, to whom Beethoven first dedicated what we now call The Kreutzer Sonata. Polish author Zygmunt Miloszewski, who regards crime fiction as the best literary form of exploring his society. His thriller 'Entanglement', is now available in English, and has been dramatized for Radio 4's 'Reading Europe' Season. Presenter Kirsty Lang Producer Ella-mai Robey.…read more
