Botticelli, Gillian Slovo, Tony Warren remembered, Dr Thorne

Gillian Slovo's latest novel, Ten Days, begins in London on a run down council estate where a young black man is accidentally killed whilst being restrained by police. In the days that follow, a peaceful demonstration turns into violent protest and the resulting riots begin to spread countrywide. Gillian Slovo discusses her book, and reveals how it was inspired by interviews she did with police, politicians, rioters and residents involved in the riots of 2011. Botticelli Reimagined at the V&A explores the ways artists from the Pre-Raphaelites to the present day have responded to the Renaissance painter's work. Curator Ana Debenedetti has brought together the largest collection of his paintings in Britain since 1930 and exhibits them alongside works such as the Botticelli-themed dress that Lady Gaga wore for her Artpop tour, to a clip of Ursula Andress emerging like Venus from the waves in Dr No. She explains what makes Botticelli such an inspiration. It was announced today that the creator of Coronation Street, Tony Warren, had died. In tribute to him we play an interview he did with Front Row when the new set was installed in 2013, and Helen Worth, who plays Gail McIntyre, remembers him. Viv Groskop reviews Dr Thorne, Julian Fellowes' three part adaptation of Anthony Trollope's 1858 novel.…read more
