Matthew Sweet talks to award-winning director Jane Campion about her new TV drama series, Top of the Lake, set amidst the remote landscape of her native New Zealand. Clive James, Australian born poet and broadcaster, is best known for his irreverent TV chat shows and autobiographical memoirs. His output has been curtailed in recent years due to serious illness but he has just published a new translation of Dante's Divine Comedy. He explains why this project was so important and what he's learnt through being forced to stop and reflect on his life.
