The Book Of Mormon, Craig Zobel's film Compliance and Mohsin Hamid's How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia

Duration:
45 minutes
First broadcast:
Saturday 23 March 2013

The Book of Mormon arrives on the London stage, much anticipated and as shocking as you might expect from the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone. It's reported to have delighted the Prime Minister already. How funny is it and does it work as a musical? Craig Zobel's film Compliance is based on real events and set in a fast food joint where the employees are convinced by someone pretending to be a police officer to strip search a colleague. Mohsin Hamid's much-acclaimed The Reluctant Fundamentalist is followed now by a novel that's superficially a self-help manual: How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia. The Designs of the Year 2013 are on display at London's Design Museum, from the Shard to a pair of glasses that mean you don't have to go to the optician. And Revolution is a new TV series from J J Abrams, the creator of Lost. Will its post-apocalyptic view of America prove as compelling? The comedian David Schneider, writer Ekow Eshun and historian Kathryn Hughes join Tom Sutcliffe to review. Producer: Sarah Johnson.
