Anais Mitchell and Jefferson Hamer

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

We talk to the Arab Israeli writer, Sayed Kashua, whose latest novel follows the stories of two very different Arab Israelis living in Jerusalem and deals with the inevitable thorny issue of identity.

The two American songwriters, Anais Mitchell and Jefferson Hamer, talk to us about their arrangement of a selection of epic old Celtic folk songs for their current release Child Ballads. They also perform one of them.
