Weekly discussion programme, setting the cultural agenda every Monday

Customer Reviews

Excellent show

This weekly show examines a theme from within the context of a variety of media. It is interesting, intelligent and refreshingly British. I look forward to each show.

A Great Roundtable Discussion

This is a great show. Each week there are around four different guests who talk about some broadly construed topic. Each guest gets some time to talk about his or her pet project. The best part, though, is that they usually have all done their homework regarding the other guests, so the war correspondant has read the poet, who's gone to see the director's movie, and so on. It makes for a very lively discussion.

Start the Week

The best culture show in the English speaking world. Enthralling guests, always dexterously guided by Mr. Marr and thankfully the "theme" serves only as a leaping off point.
