Night Waves - Tate Liverpool, Timothy Secret
Anne McElvoy examines Tate Liverpool's exhibition gathering together works by JMW Turner, Claude Monet and Cy Twombly, and hears from New Generation Thinker Timothy Secret.
Tonight in Night Waves Anne McElvoy talks to the Pulitzer Prize winner, Katherine Boo about her book, Behind the Beautiful Forevers. ...a meticulously researched and dramatic portrait of life in a Mumbai slum. It somehow manages to find hope amidst the crushing poverty and corruption. Also in the programme Jackie Wullschlager will be reviewing the literally luminous new show at Tate Liverpool which features the late work of Twombly, Turner and Monet; one of our New Generation thinkers, Timothy Secret, will be reflecting on how we mourn our dead and Uta Frith, Harry Collins and Marcus Chown will be exploring a new twist on the legacy of one of the great scientific minds of the 20th Century, Alan Turing. That's all in Night Waves with Anne McElvoy here on BBC Radio 3 at ten o'clock this evening.
