Stories of the Year – Part One

This year Daniel Craig was back as James Bond for the fourth time in Spectre, Lenny Henry wrote a television drama based on his own teenage years, and Tracy Emin remade her bed. Director Rupert Goold and actor Juliette Binoche put a modern spin on ancient Greek drama, rapper Abd al Malik was influenced by Zola, while author Paula Hawkins's new book The Girl on the Train ended the year as a bestseller around the world. Composer Philip Glass and pianist James Rhodes wrote memoirs on the role of music in their lives, while singer Jess Glynne and actor Bradley Cooper suffered for their art. Finally, ballet dancers Carlos Acosta and Sylvie Guillem bowed out while still at the top of their game. Tomorrow Ai Weiwei, Keith Richards and Anthony Hopkins, among others, share their stories.
