Peter Greenaway, George Shaw, Zoe Wanamaker, Chloe Esposito

Peter Greenaway on Eisenstein in Guanajuato; the first in a trilogy of films about his all-time cinema idol, Sergei Eisenstein. The British director, now expatriated to Holland, describes tackling the sexual awakening of one of Russia's national heroes, how films should be led by image and not text, and why he thinks provocation in art is so important. The talk of the London Book Fair is a former management consultant who has landed a series of deals worth millions of pounds. Chloé Esposito gave up her job last summer to take a writing course and now has signed deals with publishers around the world for a trilogy of books. As part of Front Row's Shakespeare's People series, Zoe Wanamaker chooses Emilia from Othello, a maid and companion to Desdemona and the wife of Iago. The artist George Shaw, who grew up on a council estate in Coventry, is coming to the end of a two-year residency in a studio at the heart of the National Gallery in London. As he prepares for his new exhibition he explains how the collection has inspired him, and why his medium of choice is the enamel paint children use for plastic aircraft models. Presenter: John Wilson Producer: Angie Nehring.…read more
