Singer James Bay, film director Pablo Larraín, tribute to actor Irrfan Khan and new drama by disabled writers

James Bay is a multi-award-winning singer-songwriter and guitarist. He has released two albums, Chaos and the Calm, and Electric Light; for which he has won multiple Brits and been nominated for three Grammys. He was recording his third album when lockdown happened, but has been keeping busy - providing guitar lessons of his greatest hits on Instagram. He joins Kirsty Lang to perform his song Hold Back the River and to provide his top tips for beginner guitarists. Chilean director Pablo Larraín was Oscar-nominated for his film Jackie, about the life of Jackie Kennedy. Larraín discusses his latest film Ema, about a young reggaeton dancer in modern-day Chile who goes to great lengths to get her adopted child back after rashly handing him back to the state. The director Gurinder Chadha pays a tribute to the Indian actor Irrfan Khan who had died aged 53. Best known in Britain for his roles as the policeman in Slumdog Millionaire and Pi as an adult in The Life of Pi, Khan was a huge star in India, appearing in many films. He played the title role in Maqbool, a version of Macbeth set in the Mumbai underworld, and starred the Bollywood musical Life in a ...Metro.

It has a deliberately in-your-face title: Crips Without Constraints – A Play, A Podcast, A Picture - and the intention is to embrace the need to isolate and at the same time celebrate the creativity of Deaf and disabled artists. Kirsty is joined by screenwriter, dramatist and Graeae patron Jack Thorne and one of the playwrights for this season, Kat Golding. Presenter: Kirsty Lang Producer: Julian May…read more
