With Antonia Quirke

Antonia's recommendation for a film to watch while the cinemas are closed is The Garden by Derek Jarman.
The garden itself and the adjacent cottage have just been saved for the nation after a successful campaign and Antonia recalls her pilgrimage to Dungeness on the 25th anniversary of the film-maker's death, when she spoke to collaborators Simon Fisher-Turner, Spencer Leigh and Seamus McGarvey, and critic Larushka Ivan-Zadeh. Antonia raids the programme's archive to hear from director Ken Russell, who gave Jarman his first job in the film industry.
