Listen in pop-out player

With Kirsty Lang.

The enduring fascination with Wallis Simpson continues in The Last of the Duchess, a new play by Nicholas Wright. Juliet Gardiner reviews Richard Eyre's production, and considers Simpson's recent popularity in film, television and literature.

Gerard Butler discusses his role in the film Machine Gun Preacher, based on the true story of a drug dealer who becomes a crusader for children caught up in conflict in Africa.

Kate Prince is the founder and creative director of Zoo Nation, an award winning dance and theatre company. Their show Into The Hoods became both the first ever hip-hop dance show to open in the West End and the longest running dance show in the West End's history. She tells Kirsty how she's trying to change hip hop's violent image.

Space Age technology and ancient Sufi poetry are fused in a new sound installation at Jodrell Bank in Cheshire. Artists Tasawar Bashir and Brian Duffy and astrophysicist Tim O'Brien discuss a work featuring the voice of the celebrated Pakistani musician Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan alongside the sounds of the cosmos.

Producer Lisa Davis.
