Scissor Sisters and writer Neil Gaiman

Duration:
30 minutes
First broadcast:
Thursday 24 June 2010

The American pop group The Scissor Sisters had their biggest hit with I Don't Feel Like Dancin', the UK's fourth- best-selling single of 2006. After ditching an entire album of songs, they are now releasing a completely new album Night Work and as they prepare to play Glastonbury on Saturday, lead singers Jake Shears and Ana Matronic reflect on the band's hits and misses.

Before the announcement of the winner of the 2010 Art Fund Prize for Museums and Galleries next week, Front Row will be visiting the four shortlisted museums. Today, Mark Lawson visits the Ulster Museum in Belfast.

And we hear Neil Gaiman, author of comics and prose for children and adults including the books Stardust and Coraline, who has won this year's CILIP Carnegie Award for Children's Writing for The Graveyard Book.

Producer Jerome Weatherald.
