Mark Gatiss, Kate Rusby, Creating New Traditions

Stories from Mark Gatiss will dominate the small screen once again this festive season. Gatiss joins Kirsty to talk about his new adaptation of Dracula, in 3 hour and a half episodes, starring John Heffernan as Jonathan Harker and Danish actor Claes Bang as the tall, dark, handsome vampire. They also discuss Gatiss’s new version of the M R James Christmas story, Martin’s Close, with Peter Capaldi as a lawyer facing the infamous ‘hanging judge’, George Jeffreys. Martin’s Close is on BBC 4 on Christmas Eve at 10pm and Dracula begins on New Year’s Day at 9pm on BBC 1. Every Christmas folk singer Kate Rusby tours the country playing Christmas songs, old, new and, especially, from Sheffield's carol tradition. She has now released five albums of Christmas music (but nothing like Slade's or Wizzard's) and she performs from her latest, Holly Head. As Brighton prepares for its annual winter solstice celebration – Burning The Clocks - Professor Martin Johnes, author of Christmas and the British: A Modern History, and Mark Norman, creator and host of The Folklore Podcast, join Kirsty to explore the way new traditions are created.
