The Culture Show Uncut (Arts)
Friday, December 19th, 2008
11:55pm to 12:55am
Lauren Laverne, Mark Kermode and Andrew Graham-Dixon look at back at some of the highlights of the Culture Show in 2008.
It is another chance to see the touching and powerful interview with Anthony Minghella, who died in March. The Culture Show had accompanied the Oscar-winning director to Botswana and been on set with him during the filming of The No 1 Ladies Detective Agency.
Verity Sharp meets with the inspirational Venezuelan conductor Gustavo Dudamel, product of El Sistema - free musical education for some of the poorest young people in Venezuela.
We show again Mark Kermode's one-man campaign to give a special send-off to the the tiny 24-seat cinema, La Charrette, in Gorseinon, South Wales. Faced with closure, Mark decides to stage the world premiere of Danny Boyle film Alien Love Triangle. Star of the film Kenneth Branagh joins the Gorseinon villagers for a red carpet night in the converted rail carriage cinema.
In an unusual encounter, Andrew Graham-Dixon 'interviews' French artist Marcel Duchamp. Famed for his influence on modern art and works such as the men's urinal re-named 'Fountain', Duchamp died in 1968.
Lauren Laverne interrogates David Simon, ground-breaking writer and creator of cult cop series The Wire.
Also featured are Johnny Depp, Ricky Gervais and Mitchell and Webb, as well as exclusive performance pieces featuring the work of Matthew Bourne, Hofesh Schechter, Edwyn Morgan and Dylan Thomas.
Music comes from Duffy, performing her hit Mercy, and band of the year, Mercury Prize winners Elbow, accompanied by Richard Hawley.
