The Great Fire; Rachel Joyce; Richard Tuttle Review; Ayub Khan Din

With Samira Ahmed. Historian Justin Champion reviews a major new TV drama series set during the time of the Great Fire of London, when the country was at war and there were also fears of Catholic plots against King Charles II. Rachel Joyce's first novel The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry was the bestselling debut of 2012. She describes her new book The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy as a companion to that novel, and tells Samira why she returned to their story. American artist Richard Tuttle has been commissioned to install a new work in the Tate Modern's Turbine Hall and also has a retrospective of his work opening at the Whitechapel Gallery in London. Richard Tuttle talks about his hopes for his new Turbine Hall commission and Rachel Campbell-Johnston reviews both exhibitions. Leonora Gummer from the Artists' Collection Society explains how artists can make sure they get paid as their works are sold on from collector to collector. Eighteen years since East Is East hit the London stage, playwright and actor Ayub Khan Din stars alongside Jane Horrocks in a fresh revival of his modern, multiracial drama. Samira talks to Ayub Khan Din about his own British-Pakistani upbringing in the north of England and the politics of race and identity in flux.…read more
