Michael Winterbottom, Painting Paradise, Spring with Fred D'Aguiar

John Wilson talks to Michael Winterbottom about his new film The Face of An Angel, a fictionalised retelling of the trial of Amanda Knox after the murder of British student Meredith Kercher. Emma Townshend reviews Painting Paradise: The Art of the Garden, a new exhibition exploring how the garden has been portrayed and celebrated in art. Made up of works from the Royal Collection, it includes rare botanical studies by Leonardo Da Vinci and 16th century Persian miniatures, as well as paintings demonstrating how monarchs from Henry VIII to Queen Victoria designed their gardens. This week the remains of Cervantes have been discovered. Art history sleuth Silvani Vicenti thinks he has identified the remains of the woman we know as the Mona Lisa. Next week the Archbishop of Canterbury will conduct the funeral of Richard III in Leicester Cathedral. In Front Row the sociologist Tiffany Jenkins will explain our fascination with bones of cultural and historic significance. The Green Fuse, Front Row's series in which artists talk about their response to the spring, and choose a work which expresses spring for them, continues with the writer Fred D'Aguiar. He lives in the hills of Virginia and gets snowed in in the winter. Spring comes with a burst of energy he finds encapsulated by the first of Rilke's sonnets to Orpheus. Presenter John Wilson Producer Julian May.…read more
