Playlist

The Nativity Story
Philip Dodd and his guests consider a new film that describes itself as "a cinematic journey into the heart of history's greatest story".

But is Hollywood's new telling of the Nativity Story actually any good? And what does it say about the pulling power of a rapidly growing Christian market in America for whom this film is clearly aimed?

Architects Vs Engineers
Architect Amanda Levete, whose practice designed the Lords Media Centre, and Engineer Jane Wernick, who collaborated on the Millenium Wheel, discuss the relationship between Architects and Engineers. 

They ask which role is more important in the realisation of a building.

On Religion
The novelist and critic Michael Arditti passes judgement on 'On Religion', the latest of writer-director Mick Gordon's 'theatre essays' at London's Soho Theatre.

In this one Gordon has joined hands with the philosopher AC Grayling to deliver a meditation on the place of organised belief in the contemporary world.
