Clive James, Joe Joyce, Marin Alsop, Hunter Davies

Olympic silver medallist, super heavyweight boxer Joe Joyce describes his love of art and how painting one of his massive canvases takes as much energy as several rounds in the boxing ring. Conductor Marin Alsop, who made history as the first woman to conduct the last night of the Proms in 2012, talks about bringing a touch of Brazil to the Royal Albert Hall as she conducts the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra in two South American themed Proms this week. Hunter Davies is known as "the man who really knew the Beatles". As the band's only authorised biographer, he sat in on recordings of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, witnessed John and Paul collaborate on songs, and collected millions of pounds worth of memorabilia (which is now in the British Museum). His latest book is an encyclopaedia full of facts and (unusually) opinions which may please and irritate fans equally . He explains why. Author, TV critic, and broadcaster Clive James, as well as writing poems and translating Dante, continues to watch television with a critical eye. He discusses his passion for box sets and the benefits that this longer television format offers actors and viewers alike. Presenter: John Wilson Producer: Angie Nehring.…read more
