On The Arts Hour with Nikki Bedi,

Golden Globe winning actor Tracee Ellis Ross on playing a pop diva in `The High Note` and the reaction of her mother, the legendary Diana Ross; South Korean American comedian Margaret Cho on Haan, the uniquely Korean concept of vengeance; and Ian Brennan on the traditions of funeral music among the Fra Fra people of Northern Ghana.

Rosamund Pike talks about playing Nobel prize-winning scientist Marie Curie in Marjane Satrapi’s film 'Radioactive'; writer Steve Waters reveals the challenges of dramatizing the founding of Israel for radio; and there’s a dedicated performance from singer-songwriter Martha Wainwright.

Nikki’s guests are film critic MaryAnn Johanson and Ghanaian artist Ibrahim Mahama, whose massive installations, questioning the way the world is run, have appeared all over the world.
