Emeli Sande, BBC National Short Story Award, Abstract Expressionism.
Scottish singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé talks about her latest project, Hurts.
The Abstract Expressionism exhibition at London's Royal Academy is the first major show on the movement for nearly 60 years. Curators David Anfam and Edith Devaney explain how bringing together the works of Pollock, Rothko, de Kooning, Gorky and Still offers a new glimpse into what has been called the first great American art movement.
Tahmima Anam has been shortlisted for the BBC National Short Story Award with Garments. It's the the story of female friendship in Bangladesh, inspired by the collapse of the Rana Plaza in Dhaka in 2013.
We remember the Pulitzer prize-winning American playwright Edward Albee who has died, with an extract from a feature-length interview he did with Front Row in January 2004.
