The best of the world's arts, film, music and literature brought to you every day.

Presented by Harriett Gilbert.

It’s a BBC Proms Special this weekend. Celebrating one of the world's biggest and best loved classical-music festivals. This year, the Proms musicians come from even further afield than usual -- everywhere from Australia to South Africa, Israel to Colombia, the USA to Egypt -- and the focus is very much on youth; we'll be talking with performers and composers -- and the Aldeburgh World Orchestra play Benjamin Britten's Sinfonia da Requiem.
