Man Ray, Paris, William Dalrymple, Oliver James
Presented by Anne McElvoy. With William Dalrymple on Britain's first Afghan war, an exhibition of Man Ray photography, Paris in the 1910s and 20s, Oliver James on office politics.
Anne McElvoy talks to the best selling historian William Dalrymple about his new book Return of A King - an account of Britain's first Afghan War in the 19th century which draws compelling parallels with the challenges the West faces in the region today.
As a major retrospective of the surrealist portrait photographer Man Ray opens at the National Portrait Gallery, Anne discusses his work with writer Kevin Jackson and film critic and Parisienne Ginette Vincendeau.
And all three are joined by cultural historian Andrew Hussey to discuss the artistic melting pot in which Ray worked: the Paris of the 1910s and Roaring 20s, which is the subject of the second major event at The Rest is Noise Festival at the South Bank centre in London.
Psychologist Oliver James discusses office politics and how to thrive in what he sees as an increasingly ruthless workplace. With leadership expert and author Dr Liz Mellon.
