Pan, Titian to Canaletto, Lisa Genova, Marcus Gardley

Hugh Jackman stars as Blackbeard in Pan, a new adaptation of J.M. Barrie's story of the boy who never grew up. Mark Eccleston reviews the film which also features Cara Delevingne and Rooney Mara. A new exhibition Titian to Canaletto: Drawing in Venice focuses on the overlooked element of Venetian art from 1500 to 1750 which opens today at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. Martin Kemp, Emeritus Professor of the History of Art at Oxford University, assesses the works on display. Lisa Genova, a trained neuroscientist and author of Still Alice which explored early-onset Alzheimer's, discusses her new novel Inside The O'Briens, in which the head of the family discovers he has Huntington's Disease. The writer reveals why she believes she can achieve more in that field by writing novels than she did in the lab. A Wolf in Snakeskin Shoes is a theatrical reworking of Moliere's satire Tartuffe, transplanted to present-day Atlanta, Georgia. It's a comedy set in a world of guns, fast-food tycoons and black churches. The dramatist Marcus Gardley, whose father was a pastor and whose uncle a founder of the Black Panthers, discusses his adaptation. Presenter Samira Ahmed Producer Jerome Weatherald.…read more
