Front Row - 03/10/2008


Presented by Kirsty Lang. Joan Baez talks to Kirsty about her childhood experiences of Baghdad, years of chronic stage fright, and dealing with her voice as it changes with age. Waldemar Januszczak has co-curated an exhibition, Statuephilia, at the British Museum which puts modern works, including Marc Quinn's solid gold statue of Kate Moss, alongside ancient artefacts. Classicist Bettany Hughes gives her views on the exhibition. Established in 1968, The Great Georges Community Cultural Project in Liverpool was Britain's first community arts centre. It quickly acquired the nickname The Blackie, adopted by those running the centre. Now the centre is about to be re-launched and there is a debate over whether it should be renamed.
