Jeanette Winterson, Henning Mankell remembered, Goya, Rod Stewart

Jeanette Winterson discusses her new novel, The Gap of Time, a cover version of Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale. The novel launches the Hogarth Shakespeare series in which some of today's bestselling writers reimagine Shakespeare's plays. She reveals why she picked The Winter's Tale, and how she went about writing her version. Henning Mankell, who wrote the 'Wallander' novels and created the Scandi Noir genre, died today. Arne Dahl, the award winning Swedish writer, was inspired by Mankell to write crime fiction. His 'Intercrime' series was shown on BBC 4 and in 40 countries around the world. Dahl pays tribute to Mankell and assesses his achievement. The National Gallery's new exhibition of Goya's portraits has already been hailed as the exhibition of the decade. John meets the curator Xavier Bray to discuss some of the paintings and the importance of the Spanish master. The Portraits runs at the National Gallery from this Wednesday 7 October until January the 10th. Rod Stewart looks back at his career and discusses his new album Another Country.
