Ruth Wilson on Dark River, Cal McCrystal on ENO's Iolanthe, Creative Scotland funding decisions

Actor Ruth Wilson talks about starring in Clio Barnard's new film Dark River, a powerful psychological drama about a sheep farming family in Yorkshire. She also discusses the BBC TV drama she is making about her grandfather, a novelist who she recently discovered was also a spy with several wives. A new report, commissioned by the Art Fund, has called for greater investment in museum collections as museums and galleries in Britain struggle to keep up with the international art market. Cultural policy expert and honorary fellow at University of Edinburgh, Tiffany Jenkins responds. Cal McCrystal, the physical comedy expert brought in to add laughs to the National Theatre's hit One Man, Two Guvnors and the Paddington films, is now directing the new English National Opera production of Gilbert and Sullivan's Iolanthe and explains how he makes Gilbert and Sullivan funny to a contemporary audience. Creative Scotland, Scotland's public arts funding body, is in the firing line over its recent funding decisions, and its leaders have now been called to appear before the Scottish Parliament's Culture Committee. Robert Softly Gale and David Leddy, two artistic directors, discuss how their organisations have been caught up in the funding storm. Presenter: John Wilson Producer: Edwina Pitman.…read more
