To mark the ninetieth anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus, Philip Dodd and guests look at the far-reaching effect of the German design school that brought sleek lines and minimalism to everyday design. How did training students equally in art and in technically perfect craftsmanship end the division between the two?

Philip also reviews Fifty Dead Men Walking, a new film which tells the life-story of IRA informant Martin McGartland.
