National Poetry Competition, Dead Sheep, Code of a Killer, Attica Locke

On an important night for poetry, the winners will be announced of the National Poetry Competition - open to anyone for a £6 entrance fee - and The Ted Hughes Award rewarding new work. Roger McGough, President of the Poetry Society, tells Kirsty Lang who's won. Jonathan Maitland, best known as a journalist and correspondent, has written his first play Dead Sheep about Geoffrey Howe's famous speech which led to Thatcher's downfall. Jonathan Maitland and Steve Nallon, who was the voice of Thatcher in Spitting Image and plays her in the play, discuss political satire on stage. Attica Locke's latest novel features murder, powerful, dirty oil companies, and corrupt politicians, set in Pleasantville: a neighbourhood that, when it was built in 1949, had been advertised as "a planned community of new homes, spacious and modern in design, and built specifically for Negro families of means and class." She explains to Kirsty why this provided the perfect setting for her book. And crime writer Mark Billingham reviews Code of a Killer, the new ITV drama starring David Threlfall and John Simm telling the true story of the discovery of DNA. Presenter: Kirsty Lang Producer: Sarah Johnson.…read more
