LIVE AID
Two decades after Band Aid's Feed the World single, the vast Live Aid gigs that followed are released on DVD. John looks back to 13 July 1985 and the greatest live music event of all time with Dave Hepworth, now editor of Word magazine, who was one of the presenters of the British TV broadcast - and Wes Butters, now presenter of Radio 1's Chart Show, who was six years old at the time...

Live Aid on DVD is out on 8 November

TATE AID
23 British artists have agreed to donate a major work to the Tate galleries. Some will give work that they create in the future; others, like the sculptor Sir Anthony Caro, are giving a work they have already made. Sir Anthony tells Front Row what he had chosen to give and why, while Tate director Sir Nicholas Serota tells John how the scheme came about.

ROBERT FRANK
John is joined by the photographer Eamonn McCabe to discuss the work of his fellow photographer Robert Frank, an American whose work chronicles the lives of London and New York, Detroit and South Wales, as seen in a new exhibition.

Robert Frank: Storylines is on at Tate Modern in London from 28 October until 23 January next year

Orchestral and Vocal Works by John Foulds, performed by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Sakari Oramo, is out now on Warner Classics
