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

Twenty Five years after it was stolen, Matisse’s Le Jardin is being returned to Sweden. We speak to Christopher Marinello from The Art Loss Register, the man who recovered it again.

Salamishah Tillet is Assistant Professor of English and Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania and author of Sites of Slavery: Citizenship and Racial Democracy in the Post-Civil Rights Imagination. She talks about the impact that Quentin Tarantino's new film has had on US audiences.

In China the notion of being a designer has not been widely accepted but today we speak to one of the new generation of artist/designers Yeli G who sells her beautiful recycled chairs to both international galleries and the old woman in her neighbourhood. What could unleashing the power of creative design mean in the new China?
