Blur's New Album, Empire Review, Jim Cartwright, Trollope's Bicentenary

Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon talk to John Wilson about the new Blur album The Magic Whip, their first as a four-piece band for 16 years. Much of it was recorded in, and inspired by, Hong Kong. Albarn and Coxon discuss how it's been, working together again after so many ups and downs. Dreda Say Mitchell reviews Empire, Lee Daniels' television show about a hip-hop record label, which has been a massive hit with US audiences. In 1986 Jim Cartwright found fame with his debut play, Road, which looked at a poor community on a Lancashire street. But the play he is best known for is The Rise and Fall of Little Voice which he wrote for Jane Horrocks. His latest play, That Ancient Secret of Youth and the Five Tibetans, premieres at the Bolton Octagon theatre this month. He talks to John Wilson about finding dramatic appeal in the subject of ageing. Today is the bicentenary of the birth of novelist Anthony Trollope. His Barchester novels are very popular but Trollope isn't rated as highly as Charles Dickens or George Eliot. Michael Symmons Roberts, who adapted Trollope's The Warden for Radio 4, argues that he is one of our greatest storytellers and creators of character.
