Prospects for Review, Friday, 10th October, 2008

ADMIN USE ONLY | 10:23 UK time, Friday, 10 October 2008

Here are the plans for Newsnight Review tonight:

John Wilson is presenting and will be joined by Paul Morley, Germaine Greer and John Harris.

The items up for discussion are:

PLAY:
NO MAN'S LAND Harold Pinter's classic play is revived in London with David Walliams and Michael Gambon in the cast following a hit run in Dublin.

FILM:
GOMORRAH Winner of one of the top prizes at Cannes this year, this Italian film is about the mafia centred around Naples. The journalist on whose book the film is based now has constant police protection after receiving death threats.

ART:
SAATCHI GALLERY The third reincarnation of Charles Saatchi's space - this time 70,000 sq ft in a converted Georgian former barracks in Chelsea. The opening exhibition features Chinese art. The Review team went along yesterday and we filmed their review in the gallery - which has free admission, and apparently clocked up 5000 visitors on opening day!

MUSIC:
OASIS - DIG OUT YOUR SOUL The band who provided the sound track to the Brit Art generation once collected by Charles Saatchi are back with a new album. Do they still have what it takes?

That's all on Newsnight Review straight after Newsnight at 11pm.

    HARRY HART

    A pity Newsnight did not see the potential of Harry Hart. There is a WORLD of difference between industrial algae exploitation and ecological algae application - even though they, obviously, overlap. Harry's relegation to a clip on the blog will have to serve - as a poignant comment on our Age.
