Matthew Sweet chairs an "International Review" edition of the programme, with critics from around the world coming together to discuss the latest global cultural events and arts issues. Matthew is joined by the Chinese novelist, Xiaolu Guo, the Scots Ghanaian novelist and architect Lesley Lokko and the Lebanese architect and commentator on Middle East affairs, Karl Sharro and the Iranian journalist Fari Bradley. They discuss the international legacy of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road; whether curves should be banned from contemporary architecture and whether James Bond should be allowed to carry on for another fifty years.
