Hang Ups, The Artist's Way author Julia Cameron, Brandenburg Concertos Prom

Julia Cameron on her creative self-help book The Artist's Way, Stephen Mangan in new TV comedy Hang Ups, and Bach's Brandenburg Concertos performed alongside new companion works.

The Artist's Way is a creative self-help book that has sold over 4 million copies and garnered dedicated fans around the world. As part of Front Row's Inspire season we speak to its author Julia Cameron who explains the philosophy behind her 12 week programme and answers listener's questions.

Stephen Mangan stars as an online therapist in new Channel 4 comedy Hang Ups, loosely based on US series Web Therapy starring Lisa Kudrow. Mangan, co-wrote and produced the series, which also features Katherine Parkinson, David Tennant, Charles Dance and Celia Imrie. Critic Emma Bullimore reviews.

As part of the 2018 BBC Proms, yesterday saw Bach's six Brandenburg Concertos - each with their own different and distinctive orchestration - performed alongside six newly commissioned companion works. Music journalist and critic Alexandra Coghlan has the Front Row verdict.

To mark Jamaican Independence Day, award-winning poet Kei Miller chooses his favourite piece by poets from his home country.
