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.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
