May 31st, 2013

Episode 342 of 1341 episodes

Anne McElvoy talks to Debra Craine about British choreographer Akram Khan’s new work, iTMOi or In the Mind of Igor, which takes inspiration from Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring. Environmentalist George Monbiot's new book Feral argues for a "rewilding" of Britain, and a reintroduction of beavers, boars and controversially, wolves. Former Director of the National Trust Dame Fiona Reynolds has a totally different approach. New Generation thinker and Tudor historian Jonathan Healey reports from the new Mary Rose Museum. Naomi Paxton and Fern Riddell discuss the Actresses' Franchise League and the plays they wrote to support the cause of Women's Suffrage.
