Naughty Boy, Best of Enemies, Bellowhead

DJ, songwriter and producer Naughty Boy on the Late Night Prom that marks the 50th anniversary this year of Asian Programmes on the BBC. Bellowhead, one of the UK's most successful folk bands, announced last month that they are going to split up after eleven years together. As they prepare to play at The WOMAD Festival, two of the band's original members, John Spiers and Jon Boden, reflect on more than a decade of music making and the state of contemporary folk music. A new film documentary Best of Enemies charts the explosive series of televised debates between the liberal writer Gore Vidal and the conservative and Republican William F Buckley when they were broadcast during the 1968 Democratic and Republican conventions in the US. Guardian writer Jonathan Freedland reviews the film about the clashing egos and their mutual distrust and enmity. And this year marks the 150th anniversary of the death of Elizabeth Gaskell. The Elizabeth Gaskell Collection at the John Rylands Library, Manchester University, has just been digitised. Archivist Fran Baker talks about the collection's treasures that can now be seen online. Presenter: John Wilson Producer: Sarah Johnson.…read more
