R3Arts: Night Waves - The Rolling Stones 24 Apr 12

April 26th, 2012

Episode 130 of 1201 episodes

For Night Waves Samira Ahmed will be considering the legacy of that most venerable British institution - The Rolling Stones. Samira will also be talking to Harry Shearer, who's latest project has raised the spirit of Richard Nixon from his political grave to walk again as the star of a television drama. Something just as dramatic but not as funny is revealed in Ferdinand Mount's latest book - The New Few and to round things off Briony Hanson will assess Albert Nobbs, the film for which Glenn Close received an Oscar nomination for playing the part of a man.
