The Culture Show -- s11e04
Wednesday 29 July 2009
7:00pm - 7:50pm
Lawrence Pollard presents from the Port Eliot Festival in Cornwall, which features an unusual mix
of literature, music and summer entertainment.
As author of the Damned United, which tackles Brian Clough's time as manager of Leeds United,
as well as the Red Riding Quartet, which was recently adapted for TV, David Peace is the writer
of the moment. Because his work is inextricably connected to his roots and upbringing in Yorkshire,
the Culture Show sent fellow author Denise Mina, who writes crime fiction set in her own home
town of Glasgow, to Leeds for a tour of Peace's home turf and to talk about his dark inspirations.
Miranda Sawyer, meanwhile, interviews the Dead Weather - Jack White of the White Stripes's
latest collaboration with a select group of indie rock stars, including Alison Mosshart of the Kills
and Dean Fertita of Queens of the Stone Age. Jack talks about stepping away from the mic to
become the drummer of the new group. There is also an exclusive performance of Treat Me Like
Your Mother, a track from the band's new album Horehound.
Andrew Graham Dixon is at Tate Modern, which this summer celebrates the centenary of the
writing of one of the founding texts of modern art, the Futurist Manifesto by Filippo Marinetti.
Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo are in front of an audience once again to debate the merits of
specific movie genres in their Screening Room. This time it is the turn of rock docs. Movies such
as Gimme Shelter, Rattle And Hum and Anvil are given the Mayo and Kermode once-over.
Plus, there is a tour of the Port Eliot Festival site and discussion with some of the country's most
successful authors who are taking part in the event.
