Judith Kerr, Mumford & Sons and Baaba Maal, Weiner, Spencer Tunick

The author and illustrator Judith Kerr, who escaped Hitler's Germany as a child and went on to write more than 30 children's books, has received a lifetime achievement award from the reading charity BookTrust. The creator of the Mog the Cat and The Tiger Who Came to Tea talks to John Wilson about what keeps her drawing and writing at the age of 93. Hadley Freeman reviews a fascinating new fly-on-the-wall film about American politician Anthony Weiner, whose campaign to be Mayor of New York is beset with scandal. Folk rockers Mumford & Sons travelled to South Africa earlier this year to perform a series of concerts. They came back having recorded a mini-album, Johannesburg, with Senegalese singer Baaba Maal, South African rockers Beatenberg and electronic producers The Very Best. Marcus Mumford and Ben Lovett from the group, and Baaba Maal joined John to discuss what attracted them both to the collaboration. And tomorrow thousands of members of the public will be taking to the streets of Hull naked and painted blue. They're taking part in an installation called Sea of Hull. We speak to the artist Spencer Tunick about the practicalities of pulling off such a large scale work. Presenter - John Wilson Producer - Rachel Simpson.…read more
