Arts news and reviews with John Wilson.

Named as Ireland's greatest living musician in RTE's People of the Year Awards 2007, folk singer-songwriter Christy Moore is best known for his political and social commentary. He discusses his latest album, Listen.

Based on the stage play by CP Taylor, Good examines the rise of fascism in 1930s Germany and stars Viggo Mortensen as a bookish professor who finds himself unwillingly and unwittingly swept up in the policies of the Nazi party. Novelist and critic Sarah Dunant reviews the film.

Author Philipp Meyer discusses American Rust, his debut novel, set in a decaying Pennsylvania steel town, and the inspiration he took from his childhood in Baltimore.

As the Tate Britain recreates William Blake's critically panned one-man exhibition from 1809, John Wilson visits the gallery to discover where it went wrong two centuries ago.
