Jess Glynne, Don Paterson, Danny and the Human Zoo, Cradle to Grave

Two new TV dramas follow the formative years and early careers of two of the UK's best loved entertainers - Lenny Henry and Danny Baker. Danny and the Human Zoo charts Lenny Henry's rise to fame in 1970s talent show New Faces and Cradle to Grave, which is also set in the early 1970s, is based on Baker's autobiography. Julia Raeside reviews. The award winning Scottish poet Don Paterson discusses his new collection of work, 40 Sonnets. With subjects ranging from Tony Blair to cold calls, some take a traditional form while others are highly experimental. The singer Jess Glynne is one of only two British female solo artists to have had five UK Number 1 singles, including Rather Be, Not Letting Go and Hold My Hand. Her new single Don't Be So Hard on Yourself topped the charts on Friday. The singer looks back over her short but very successful career, as she launches her first solo album I Cry When I Laugh. Charlotte Eagar discusses staging the musical Oliver! in Amman. The production features a cast of Syrian refugees alongside residents of a deprived neighbourhood of the Jordanian capital. Presenter: John Wilson Producer: Jack Soper.…read more
