Dominic Cooper and Terry Johnson, Turner Prize shortlist, Completing other authors' books

As the work of the Turner Prize-shortlisted artists go on show at Tate Britain, Charlotte Mullins assesses what the exhibition says about the strength of contemporary art in the UK. Brian McCormick, Seamus Heaney's nephew and director of a new arts and literary centre dedicated to the Nobel laureate, talks about opening the exhibition space in the poet's home town of Bellaghy, Northern Ireland. Meg Rosoff, who completed the new novel Beck by her friend Mal Peet after he passed away, and Samantha Norman, who finished her mother Ariana Franklin's historical thriller Winter Siege, discuss the challenges - and joys - of completing books after the death of their authors. Actor Dominic Cooper and director Terry Johnson discuss their new production of The Libertine, Stephen Jeffreys' 1994 play about the rake and poet John Wilmot who scandalised the court of Charles II. Presenter: John Wilson Producer: Rachel Simpson.…read more
