Winona Ryder, John Turturro and Anthony Boyle star in a new Sky Atlantic drama The Plot Against America adapted by David Simon from Philip Roth’s alternate history which was first published in 2004.

For the festival, Rachel has invited 10 other black writers to write their own letters of something unsaid. We speak to Rachel about the project. John goes to Houghton Hall in Norfolk to talk to artist Anish Kapoor about his exhibition of outdoor sculptures, and how the art world has changed during the last few months. We also hear from Lord Cholmondeley, owner of Houghton. An old-fashioned method for performers to reach their audiences in these times of social isolation has re-emerged, in a new way. The Drive-in experience is back! Drive-in opera, drive-in theatre, drive-in shows for kids and even drive-in comedy. John Wilson talks to comedian Daniel Sloss who took part in a drive-in comedy gig where the audience flashed their lights and beeped their horns instead of applauding Image: Sky Mirror, 2018 by Anish Kapoor Presenter: John Wilson Producer: Simon Richardson Studio Manager: Giles Aspen…read more
