Former Royal Ballet star Adam Cooper choreographs a new staging of Leonard Bernstein's notoriously tricky Candide at the Menier Chocolate Factory in London. Theatre critic of The Stage Mark Shenton and Tutor in French at Jesus College Oxford Caroline Warman review.
Hermione Lee and Simon Garfield discuss the insight personal letters give into writers' lives and creative processes, and also consider the moral implications of studying them.
Experimental band Can changed the face of music in the 1960s. Dubbed Krautrock by unthinking British critics, two members of the band had in fact studied with Karlheinz Stockhausen, and went on to mix his ideas with free jazz, Moroccan and Japanese music styles and intense performance to create a new and highly influential sound. Can founder member Irmin Schmidt, novelist Lawrence Norfolk, music writer Alexis Petridis and London correspondent for Die Zeit, John Jungclaussen, consider their music and its influence.
Producer: Laura Thomas.
