Girl reviewed, Long Lost Likely Lads, Winners of a $165,000 literature prize, News from the London Book Fair

Briony Hanson reviews the Golden Globe nominated film, Girl, which tells the story of a trans teenage girl who, training to be a ballerina is struggling to adapt to dancing “on pointe” during her transition from male to female.

Dick Clement who, with Ian La Frenais, wrote the television comedy series tells John Wilson how tapes of what now be considered classic programmes were wiped. He discusses, too, the groundbreaking qualities of these stories about Terry and Bob, two working class Geordie lads, one with aspirations, the other more content with his lot. The Windham-Campbell prize at $165,000 is one of the biggest literary prizes in the world despite being relatively unknown. The prize is judge anonymously and the writers don't even know they’ve been nominated. We announce this year’s winners and speak to two of them. How did they received the news and how they plan to spend their winnings. The London Book Fair is underway and to its Director, Jacks Thomas, talks about what research into the UK’s favourite book genres reveals - who reads what, where - the health of the publishing business, and the book deals and highlights of the fair so far.
