Tonight's Front Row celebrates the return of giant puppets to Liverpool. This time, the little girl and her dog are joined by her grandmother: Kirsty Lang finds out about the threesome, and how Liverpool council copes with turning the city-centre into a giant's performance-space. Also in the programme: thriller writer Gerald Seymour on the changing face of contemporary Irish politics; Rufus Bonds Jnr and Nicola Hughes on singing Porgy And Bess; and a review of the first solo exhibition of works by Gego - who has been described as the grandmother of Venezuelan contemporary art.
