Talking Books

http://www.bbc.co.uk/partners/english/programmes/talking-books–germaine-greer

Martha Kearney talks to Germaine Greer in front of a live audience at Hay Festival in Wales for the first programme in a new series of Talking Books.

Germaine Greer has been described by one commentator recently as having reached national treasure status, she describes herself as a curmudgeonly old feminist. Neither gives any sense of the sheer range of her work, the brilliance of her polemic, the depth of her literary and academic research or her passion for nature reflected in her most recent book White Beech about her quest to restore a piece of abandoned farmland in Australia. Her first book, The Female Eunuch, caused shockwaves around the world and remains a best seller. Martha Kearney asks her why she decided to write it and whether now 45 years later she feels women are better off.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/partners/english/programmes/talking-books–kazuo-ishiguro

For this week’s episode of Talking Books Martha Kearney speaks to Kazuo Ishiguro in front of a live audience at Hay Festival in Wales.

Kazuo Ishiguro has managed to achieve literary success with immense popularity amongst readers. He has won a Man Booker prize and been shortlisted four times. His novels have sold in their million around the world and have been made into highly successful films. His latest book The Buried Giant is set in a Anglo-Saxon England beset by ogres and dragons and is his first novel in ten years. He talks to Martha Kearney about some of the themes in his books as well as his highly individual prose style.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/partners/english/programmes/talking-books–yuval-noah-harari

For this week’s episode of Talking Books, Anita Anand speaks to Yuval Noah Harari on his new book Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind.

Sapiens starts big from the very start – asking profound questions like – what defines us as a species – how did we come to be like this and what truly makes us happy. It is has been translated into over 30 languages and is now a bestseller in many countries around the world. He talks to Anita Anand about why he decided to take on such a mammoth task and questions whether we really are happier now than we were 15,000 years ago.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/partners/english/programmes/talking-books–anne-enright

For this week’s episode of Talking Books Anita Anand speaks to award winning novelist Anne Enright.

Anne Enright was catapulted onto the international stage in 2007 when she was the surprise winner of the Man Booker Prize for her fourth novel The Gathering. Since then she has continued to rise and rise – this year becoming Ireland’s first ever Laureate for Fiction. Witty, warm, yet at the same time ascorbic and brutal in her writing, she rips up the rule book, crocheting with complicated timelines and weaving in and out of the secrets of her protagonists. She speaks to Anita Anand about the themes in her work; love, sex, secrets and Ireland’s tumultuous history.

For June 7

There will be an extra placing of the special program “The Great Charter” at 1100 ET, with a repeat on June 11 at 0400 ET

To mark the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, this innovative documentary-drama charts the fight for rights and freedoms in the 21st Century’s supra-state: the Internet. In 2020 the most powerful men and women in the world gather at Runnymede. Their purpose, the fusion of the G20 with the i5 group of information transnationals controlling the planet’s data and digital access. A communications system failure signals the start of an escalating cyber attack that will sow panic and disorder across the globe. From the chaos a new order could be forged. This is zero-day vulnerability.

Produced by John Dryden, Goldhawk Productions
