Stephen Poliakoff interview

Jamie Cullum is joined by the British director and playwright Stephen Poliakoff.

The pair discuss Stephen's latest BBC Two series, Dancing On The Edge.

The pair talk about the rich music and fascinating characters of the era, like Snake Hips Johnson and Duke Ellington.

Stephen also shares some of his new-found favourite early jazz tracks with Jamie, as well as original tracks from his series' soundtrack.
