Live from the Edinburgh Festival. Petroc Trelawny interviews Jonathan Mills, director of the Edinburgh International Festival, and talks to a selection of the top artists from around the world appearing at the festival, including organist Naji Hakim, pianist Gabriela Montero, conductor Emmanuelle Haim, and members of Scottish Opera's new production of Smetana's Two Widows. Simon Callow pops in to read some Dickens from his Fringe show, and Petroc highlights other Fringe artists including accordionist Sandy Brechin and a tribute show to George Formby.
