Angus Macqueen on his Chilean Miners Documentary

Listen in pop-out player

With Kirsty Lang.

It's been a year since 33 Chilean miners found themselves trapped after a collapse. The 17 gruelling days when the miners were completely isolated is the focus of a TV documentary by Angus Macqueen. He discusses making the film, and the relationships he made with men who were radically changed by their experiences.

Ruth Wilson stars with Jude Law in a new production of Anna Christie, Eugene O'Neill's play about a young woman trying to escape her past. She discusses her boating bonding session with her co-star, her TV performances from Jane Eyre to Luther, and why she is drawn to intense and damaged female characters.

Composer Gabriel Prokofiev and DJ Switch discuss their collaboration on the Concerto For Turntables and Orchestra - the first time that the turntable has appeared as a solo instrument at the BBC Proms. They explain how audiences in clubs differ from those in a concert hall, and demonstrate the sounds and effects created by a needle on vinyl during the piece.

Producer Rebecca Nicholson.
