We review the latest exhibition of a modern Frankenstein – one of the descriptions used for Ron Mueck, a hyper realist sculptor, who evokes both admiration and contempt. Also in the programme Award winning poet and first National Laureate of Wales, Gwyneth Lewis talks about her first ever play Clytemnestra and Tony Blair’s former speechwriter, Philip Collins and Edith Hall, a Professor of Classics argue over the ingredients of a great speech and whether technology really has fundamentally changed the art of speechwriting.
