Are we living in a second Elizabethan era? Juliet Gardiner, Stephen Haseler, Vernon Bogdanor and Julie Sanders join Philip Dodd to discuss in what sense we are all new Elizabethans. Antigone is on the stage of the National Theatre and the classicist Edith Hall and political theorist Kimberly Hutchings discuss how the play resonates today. And as an exhibition of Thomas Heatherwick's work opens at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, Philip meets him to explore how he sees his work.
