Artist Richard Long, Stella Duffy chooses her Queer Icon, Daljit Nagra on Liu Xiaobo
It's 50 years this summer since the artist Richard Long took steps across a Wiltshire field to create A Line Made By Walking, now regarded as a classic piece of conceptual art. John meets him in a rare interview in his studio near Bristol.
