This Friday, Night Waves comes from Manchester as part of Radio 3's anniversary programmes marking 60 years since the founding of the Third Programme.

Philip Dodd and guests explore the changing status of culture "Sixty Years on". How has our appreciation and understanding of culture changed over those years? In what ways has the role of culture shifted? And is it for better or for worse?

Philip Dodd compares the cultural climate of '46 - the year the Arts Council was founded, the United Nations first met and Herman Hesse won the Nobel Prize for Literature - with 2006, and its reality TV shows, I Pods and mass media.

Joining Philip Dodd in the Manchester studio are former Factory Records boss Tony Wilson, the cultural commentator Jeffrey Richards, Munira Mirza co-founder of the Manifesto Club which promotes enlightenment values, the playwright Mark Ravenhill and, from Edinburgh, the critic Joyce McMillan.
