Join Nikki Bedi for an interview with Kylie who tells us about her new album Kiss Me Once. Caravaggio's masterpiece, Supper at Emmaus comes to a Hong Kong shopping mall as a massive projection in an attempt to engage Hong Kong's shoppers in visual art. We meet Australia's finest virtuoso didgeridoo player, Mark Atkins who has played with everyone from Sinead O'Connor to the minimalist composer Philip Glass. We talk to Jean Yves Ollivier about the new documentary film, Plot for Peace. It's about the end of apartheid and the release of Nelson Mandela and tells his story: a French businessman known as Mr. Jacques, who worked behind the scenes with leaders from Congo to Cuba to make it possible to release Mandela. We've got a session from singer Amira Kheir. Her new album, Alsahraa mixes traditional Sudanese sounds with jazz and soul. She came into the studio with her Colombian guitarist. Artist Ai Weiwei talks about his imprisonment, part of the BBC's Freedom season. With Persian speakers celebrating New Year last week, we look at censorship and Iranian Literature. Plus soprano, Catherine Bott visits a recording studio to find out how software can correct out of tune singing.
