    Private Eye: the First 50 Years

    Scourge of dodgy politicians, lampooner of lazy journalism and home to some of the finest comedy cartoons in the country, satirical magazine Private Eye celebrates its half centenary with an exhibition at the V&A. On display are 50 of its iconic front covers chosen by editor Ian Hislop, an extensive archive of cartoons and a recreation of the infamous Soho offices which have seen the likes of Peter Cook, Paul Foot and Richard Ingrams through its doors.

    Also published to coincide with the exhibition is ‘Private Eye the First 50 Years’ written by Eye staffer Adam MacQueen, chronicling its humble origins as a student rag, to becoming the number one best selling news and current affairs magazine in the UK.

    Private Eye: The First 50 Years continues at the V&A until January 8. Admission to the exhibition is free.

    Private Eye the First 50 Years is out now and published by Private Eye Productions Ltd.

    13 at the National Theatre

    13 presents a dystopian vision of contemporary London, a country on the brink of financial collapse whilst a Prime Minister prepares for war in the Middle East. The enigmatic John, played by Trystan Gravelle, leads an intellectual and moral protest against the looming conflict which draws him into the centre of power. Written by Mike Bartlett, the play opened at the National Theatre this week where it will run until 8 January.

  • Top Boy

    Top Boy

    Created by screenwriter Ronan Bennett (Public Enemies, The Hamburg Cell, Hidden), Channel 4's new miniseries follows the lives of a group of young people on the fictional Summerhouse Estate in East London.
    Part gangster thriller and part social realism, the series aims to present the realities of an environment where drug dealing and gangland violence are all too common.
    So is Top Boy successful in representing the lives of these young people, or will it reinforce stereotypes about urban youth and about inner city estates as crime-ridden badlands?

    Top Boy airs on Channel 4 over four nights, from 31 October to 3 November.

  • Anoushka Shankar

    Anoushka Shankar

    Daughter and pupil of world-renowned sitarist Ravi Shankar, Anoushka Shankar is now widely recognised as a prodigious sitarist and composer in her own right. Bridging the gap between East and West, her musical style is as innovative and experimental as it is reflective of her classical Indian roots.

    Since her debut recording at the age of 13, she has released six albums, including Traveller, which was released this month. Her first Grammy nomination made her the youngest person ever nominated in the World Music category and her fourth album, Rise, garnered her second Grammy nomination in the Best Contemporary World Music category.

    Tonight she plays live on the Review Show.
