The Royals, Peggy Seeger, Sean Scully, Spring with Anna Meredith

The Royals is the first scripted drama from the E! channel which launched the careers of the Kardashians. It centres on a fictional Royal Family where Elizabeth Hurley plays the Queen and Joan Collins the Queen Mother. As the programme launches in the UK, Boyd Hilton explains why American TV has such a fascination with our most famous family. Ahead of The Flatpack Film Festival which is celebrating the work of documentary film-maker Philip Donnellan, Folk singer Peggy Seeger discusses working with Ewan MacColl on the Radio Ballad documentaries, which inspired Donnellan's work. Abstract painter and printmaker Sean Scully uses oils to create thickly-layered panels and blocks, representing urban contemporary life. As the two-times Turner Prize nominee prepares to show his work at this year's Venice Biennale, Scully talks to John about comparisons of his art to Lego and what prompted him to start using the colour green again. The Green Fuse, Front Row's series in which artists talk about their response to spring and choose a work which expresses spring for them, continues with the composer Anna Meredith. She discusses Wake Up by the Canadian band Arcade Fire. Presenter: John Wilson Producer: Ellie Bury.…read more
