Matthew Sweet presents a Night Waves special, part of the Light Fantastic Festival weekend on the Southbank in London. Light verse, light music, light entertainment - what do the arts prefaced by this somewhat pejorative term really mean? Matthew debates what lies behind the light with Valentine Cunningham,
Professor of English Literature at Corpus Christi College, Oxford, cultural historian Dr Juliet Gardiner, Canon Chancellor of St Paul's Cathedral Dr Giles Fraser and pianist and film historian Neil Brand.
Producers: Fiona McLean and Georgia Mann.
