Daniel Radcliffe; William Kentridge; BBC National Short Story Award; and turning sex into prose

Daniel Radcliffe talks about his two new and very different films: in one he's an FBI agent who infiltrates a white supremacist group, in the other he's a farting corpse. Eimear McBride's new novel, The Lesser Bohemians, has been much praised for the fresh and frank way it portrays sex. Professor Sarah Churchwell and novelist Matt Thorne join Samira to discuss the literary art of turning sex into prose. The South African artist William Kentridge discusses his new exhibition Thick Time, which features drawing, film, opera, dance, tapestry and sculpture, much of it influenced by his experience of living in apartheid and post-apartheid Johannesburg. And today's shortlisted author for the BBC National Short Story Award is Claire-Louise Bennett whose short story, Morning, Noon and Night, is narrated by a woman who lives by herself on the West coast of Ireland and spends much of her time with her memories. Presented by Samira Ahmed Produced by Ella-mai Robey.…read more
