New BBC drama Press, Kate Tempest, John Wilson learns the art of watercolouring
Mike Bartlett and Charlotte Riley discuss Press, a new TV drama about the world of print journalism, Kate Tempest performs from her new collection, and John Wilson learns to paint.
Award winning Doctor Foster writer, Mike Bartlett, discusses his new show Press alongside one of its stars, the Peaky Blinders actor Charlotte Riley. The programme centres around two competing papers, a broadsheet and a tabloid, both struggling to find their place in a changing world of print journalism.
Award-winning poet, novelist, playwright, rapper and recording artist Kate Tempest on her new poetry collection Running Upon The Wires - an intimate look at the end of a relationship, the beginning of another, and what happens in between when the heart is pulled both ways at once.
As part of our inspire season Front Row presenters have been taking up the creative challenge of having a go and tackling a new art. Today John Wilson joins the Wapping Group of Artists alongside the river banks of Walton-on-Thames to try his hand at a water colour.
Presenter: John Wilson
Producer: Rebecca Armstrong.
