In the week he turns 80, John Wilson talks to the poet who helped start the counter-culture revolution in the UK, Michael Horovitz. Boyd Hilton reviews The Jinx, a controversial 6-part HBO documentary made by Andrew Jarecki which secures what sounds like a confession to murder from its subject, Robert Durst, heir of a US property developer family. As two films examining the impact of drone warfare are released, directors Andrew Niccol and Tonje Hessen Schei consider why the subject is proving such fertile territory for artists and storytellers. And is the download dead? With the arrival of paid for streaming services from Youtube, Jay Z's Tidal, and Apple's Beats Music launching later in the year, music industry executive Stephen Budd looks at the evidence. Producer: Craig Templeton Smith
