Matthew Sweet is joined by writer, Mark Ravenhill and literary critic, Sos Eltis to consider Steven Soderbergh's film - Behind the Candelabra. They’ll also discuss what it adds to our understanding of "camp" and its part in contemporary culture. Art historian T J Clark, talks about his latest book, Picasso and Truth.
