Kevin McNally; new Fourth Plinth art; Terry Jones on Under Milk Wood
With Mark Lawson.
Kevin McNally has acted on stage opposite Jude Law and Kenneth Branagh, and has appeared in more than two dozen films, including all four Pirates of the Caribbean movies. He now stars in The Mill, a new four-part TV drama, which depicts events in rural-industrial England in 1833 and is based on the extensive archive of Quarry Bank Mill in Cheshire. He discusses the appeal of playing characters who are far from likeable, and reveals how he thinks it helped that he was a little tipsy when he auditioned for Pirates Of The Caribbean.
The latest artwork to be commissioned for the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square has been unveiled by London Mayor Boris Johnson. Hahn / Cock by the German artist Katharina Fritsch is a sculpture of a giant blue cockerel. Katharina Fritsch and Boris Johnson explain what the latest statue to occupy the plinth means to them.
For Cultural Exchange, Monty Python's Terry Jones selects Under Milk Wood, the play for voices by Dylan Thomas, which was narrated by Richard Burton and first broadcast on the BBC Third Programme in 1954.
