Rembrandt, Bob Geldof, Here Lies Love

Simon Schama reviews the National Gallery's new blockbuster exhibition Rembrandt: The Late Works, the first-ever exploration of his final paintings. Bob Geldof joins John to talk about the recent re-forming of The Boomtown Rats, and the release of a new compilation of classic Rats tracks. He explains how a band is like a surrogate family, how the songs' subject-matter is still relevant today - and how singing with the Rats again has helped him cope with the death of his daughter, Peaches. Here Lies Love at the National Theatre tells the story of Imelda Marcos through the medium of disco. With music composed by David Byrne of Talking Heads and DJ Fatboy Slim, the interactive musical has the audience dancing with world leaders as it portrays Marcos's rise to power and fall from grace. Shahidha Bari reviews. And what are the odds on tonight's Man Booker Shortlist, open to Americans for the first time? John hears from Graham Sharpe of William Hill. Presenter: John Wilson Producer: Sarah Johnson.…read more
