Episode 154 of 1341 episodes

Rana Mitter discusses Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch with the actress Fiona Shaw, the choreographer Michael Keegan Dolan, and the dance critic Sarah Crompton. Martin Amis’ new novel ‘Lionel Asbo: State of England’ has burst onto the literary scene like a hand grenade of brilliant divisiveness. Reviewers seem to either love or hate the book which describes the lottery winning lunacy of one feckless urban criminal and his grossly extended family. There was an all-nighter of philosophy at the Institut Francais in London at the week-end and Night Waves was there to find out whether such a French happening has much to teach us.And two new blockbuster films reimagine the story of Snow White: Mirror Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman.
