William Eggleston exhibition, Tess Gerritsen, Graphene artists, Wang Jianlin

In the 1960s when only black-and-white photographs were considered 'art', the American photographer William Eggleston changed that perception with his brightly-coloured photographs of the American South. Photographer Eamonn McCabe reviews a new exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery which brings together many of Eggleston's portraits of the people who lived there. Tess Gerritsen, author of the best-selling crime series Rizzoli and Isles, talks to Kirsty about her latest novel, a stand-alone historical thriller, Playing with Fire. In 2012, the art collective Random International made headlines with their work Rain Room which featured a large room filled with pouring rain which visitors could walk through without getting wet. For a new show at Manchester's Museum of Science and Industry they've made their first video work, Everything and Nothing, in response to graphene, the world's first two-dimensional material. Co-founder of the collective, Florian Ortkrass, discusses making art out of scientific discoveries. Wang Jianlin, one of China's billionaires, made his fortune in property development. Now intent on building a global entertainment empire, he's been busy buying film production companies and cinema chains worldwide, including most recently the UK's Odeon cinema chain. Patrick Frater, Asia Bureau Chief for Variety, explains why Wang Jianlin could soon be making his presence felt in Hollywood. Presenter Kirsty Lang Producer Jerome Weatherald.…read more
