Nicholas Hytner, Peep Show, Winner of the Goldsmiths Prize, Waste review

Director Nicholas Hytner describes the filming of The Lady in the Van which tells the story of how Miss Shepherd, a cantankerous, homeless old woman, came to live in a derelict van in writer Alan Bennett's driveway for 15 years. The Goldsmiths Prize is awarded annually and celebrates inventive writing. Previous winners include Eimear McBride and Ali Smith. As the 2015 prize is awarded this evening, we'll be announcing the result and talking to the winner from the ceremony. Waste by Harley Granville Barker is, says Richard Eyre, one of the best English plays of the 20th century, despite being banned in 1907. It's a drama of political intrigue, scandal, power-broking by an elite and gender politics. Critic Sam Marlowe reviews the new production at the National Theatre, directed by Roger Michell. Amid much hullabaloo the Bodleian Library in Oxford has acquired and put online Shelley's Poetical Essay on the Existing State of Things. But this long-lost poem was discovered almost a decade ago. So why has it not been available until today? Michael Rosen offers his view on the background to the story. Channel 4's longest-running comedy series, Peep Show, begins its final series tonight. Kirsty talks to its stars, David Mitchell and Robert Webb. Presenter: Kirsty Lang Producer: Rebecca Armstrong.…read more
