An audience with Lee Hall, writer of Billy Elliot and The Pitmen Painters, recorded at The Sage Gateshead as part of the Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival. From a working-class background, much of Hall's work explores the complexities of what class means in the UK. At the festival Lee Hall discusses class and art, his own life, writing and ideas. The event is chaired by Night Waves presenter Philip Dodd and recorded on Sunday 4 November 2012.
