For many, Edith Wharton is one of the great chroniclers of ‘Gilded Age’ New York. Her classic works such as The Age of Innocence and The House of Mirth conjure an image of social delicacy and moneyed snobbery from which Wharton herself is rarely divorced. But renowned biographer HERMIONE LEE has produced a comprehensive new take on this remarkable author which shatters the enduring stereotype. Edith Wharton emerges in full colour as a bold, passionate and determined woman, a keen social observer with a sharp eye and much to say on the follies of American society and custom. Edith Wharton is published by Chatto & Windus.

‘To be good, you had to be on the Left.’ These are the words of journalist and political commentator NICK COHEN, brought up in a strictly Leftist family. But in the aftermath of the Iraq war, the liberal-Left, once defined by its rigid anti-fascism, seems to have turned on its head, adopting many of the arguments and attitudes of the ultra-Right. In a world where the Left are now far more likely to excuse the behaviour of totalitarian tyrants than the Right, Nick Cohen asks not only what, but who, the Left are fighting for? What's Left?: How Liberals Lost their Way is published by Fourth Estate.

Tony Blair proclaimed a more positive European policy to be one of his premiership goals; he wanted Britain to be at the heart of Europe. JOHN KAMPFNER, Editor of the New Statesman, questions what has happened to that European dream and looks ahead to a Europe post Blair. Dangerous Liaisons will be published next year.

The Government wants more young people to go to university. Critics argue that this expansion has led to a decline in standards. Are too many people going to university? This is the subject of the latest Intelligence Squared debate and CLAIRE FOX, Director of the Institute of Ideas, is for the motion, arguing that universities have lost sight of their purpose. Academics have lost confidence in their role as intellectual leaders, the centre of academic life has moved from expertise and subject knowledge to students themselves and, as a result, the status of universities as centres of excellence has been eroded. Too Many People Go to University is at the Royal Geographical Society in London tomorrow.

This week Andrew Marr is joined by Hermione Lee, Nick Cohen, John Kampfner and Claire Fox.

During the mid-seventies WANGARI MAATHAI founded the Green Belt Movement, Kenya’s famous environmental and human rights campaigning group that has restored forests and provided income and sustenance to the Kenyan people through the planting of trees. She became a major political figure in Kenya, standing up to Daniel Arap Moi’s oppressive regime. In recognition of her work she became the first African woman to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. She talks about her tree planting and her fight for sustainable development, democracy and peace throughout Africa. Unbowed: One Woman’s Story is published by William Heinemann.

What are religious leaders and organisations doing to communicate the importance of safeguarding our natural environment? According to former Dominican Friar and devout Roman Catholic MARK DOWD they are doing very little. In his latest programme, God is Green, Mark goes on a personal journey to find out why the world’s major faiths are being so quiet about climate change, despite the fact that in their holy texts there are passages supporting environmentalism. God is Green will be broadcast on 12 February on Channel 4 at 8.00pm.

No other artist’s work has come to define a period of British history as powerfully and enduringly as that of William Hogarth. The Rake’s Progress and Marriage A-la-Mode were only two examples of his withering satire. His images have been borrowed by artists, advertisers and cartoonists; his Progresses adorn pub walls and dentists' waiting rooms, and have been turned into pantomimes, plays and operas. But a new exhibition at Tate Britain, the most comprehensive for thirty years, will stress the variety of Hogarth’s work, which extended to portraiture and history paintings. The curator, CHRISTINE RIDING, argues that Hogarth was in fact Britain’s first truly modern artist with a huge relevance to British art now. Hogarth opens at Tate Britain on 7 February and runs until 29 April.

The former Conservative defence secretary, MICHAEL PORTILLO, is used to controversy, which is perhaps a good thing, given the latest project he has become involved in. The BBC has been heavily criticised for its new programme, The Verdict, in which a celebrity jury sits in judgement over a four day rape trial, presided over by a real judge. With the jury made up of people like Jeffrey Archer and Stan Collymore, legal experts have warned that, far from advancing viewers’ knowledge and understanding of the working of our jury system, it is likely to do the exact opposite. The Verdict will be screened on BBC 2 for five consecutive days from 11 February.

Wangari Maathai, Mark Dowd, Christine Riding and Michael Portillo join Andrew Marr.

LYNNE TRUSS is now famous for her books about the importance of punctuation and good manners, but she has also written numerous radio comedy dramas, hosted her own series and authored a series of monologues about men and women of a certain age, that age being 42. Now the monologues are being published in book form and Lynne talks about the difficulties of writing from only one point of view and about characters who often display a startling lack of self-awareness. A Certain Age is published by Profile Books.

It is one of Shakespeare’s last plays and has been described as one of the most brilliant about politics and power ever written. Though it is set in Ancient Rome, Coriolanus has proved itself over the centuries as a very relevant study of the relationship between personality and politics. The distinguished actress and RSC Associate Artist, JANET SUZMAN talks about her role as Volumnia in a new production of Coriolanus at the Royal Stratford Theatre, part of the Complete Works Festival. Coriolanus runs from 23 February to 31 March.

Kenneth Tynan was one of the most influential theatre critics of his age. His tenure at The Observer in the Fifties and Sixties was legendary, he heralded writers such as Brecht, Beckett and Pinter but was also known for his particularly savage reviews of such venerated actors as John Gielgud, Donald Wolfit and Ralph Richardson. Tynan’s biographer DOMINIC SHELLARD has selected and edited the best of his writing in a new book and talks about Tynan’s literary skill and how he changed the nature of theatre. Kenneth Tynan Theatre Writings is published by Nick Hern Books and will be Radio 4’s Book of the Week from 26 February.

EDWARD PEARCE has written a new biography of Sir Robert Walpole who was one of the most gifted and intuitive, as well as corrupt politicians Britain has ever produced. Whilst managing to survive the death of the approving George I and the accession of the hostile George II through what would today be termed “people skills”, Walpole also amassed a vast personal fortune through corruption. He held the position which we’d now recognise as that of the Prime Minister for longer than any other leader since and during this time he kept Britain out of wars and ensured long periods of economic stability. The Great Man: Sir Robert Walpole - Scoundrel, Genius and Britain’s First Prime Minister is published by Jonathan Cape.

Andrew Marr is joined by Lynne Truss, Janet Suzman, Dominic Shellard and Edward Pearce.

A new play based on the life of the BBC correspondent James Mossman searches for the truth behind his bewildering suicide. RICHARD EYRE is directing The Reporter, written by Nicholas Wright, and talks about James Mossman and his style of reporting - ditching deference for a more confrontational approach. The Reporter opens at the National Theatre on Wednesday 21 February.

In a major three-part series, award-winning documentary maker MICHAEL COCKERELL, who has a track record for persuading interviewees to be indiscreet, tells the inside story of Blair’s controversial ten years at the top.

Blair: The Inside Story starts on Tuesday 20 February at 9.00pm on BBC 2.

Flick through any newspaper and it soon becomes clear that Middle England is a force to be reckoned with. Politicians are desperate to woo it, asylum seekers had best avoid it, and anyone who sees themselves as an upstanding citizen could do a lot worse than move to it. As part of BBC 4’s Way We Live Now season, CHRIS ADDISON presents The Hunt for Middle England. The actor and comedian goes in search of Mr and Mrs Middle England by quizzing demographers, statisticians, politicians and members of the Women’s Institute. The Hunt for Middle England is on BBC 4 on Sunday 4 March at 9.00pm.

One hundred eminent Prospect magazine writers from Josef Joffe to Michael Lind were asked "the Big Question" about the future of politics: If Left versus right defined the 20th century. What’s next? The overall tone of the answers was surprisingly pessimistic. The philosopher and Chair of the Prospect Editorial Board, A C GRAYLING, assesses why so many thinkers are so gloomy about the future. The answers appear in the March edition of Prospect magazine.

Women played a far more prominent role in the life and ritual of Ancient Greece than has been thought. That is the argument of the American archaeologist JOAN BRETON CONNELLY, whose new book is about the life and status of Greek priestesses. She believes that priestesses were as important as priests in the cults of the gods, but until now there has not been a full-length treatment in English of the role of women in ancient Greek ritual. She talks about the joys and difficulties involved in examining evidence that has survived by chance across great distances of time and space, leaving us with a picture of women who loved their communities, served them well and were long remembered by them. Portrait of a Priestess: Women and Ritual in Ancient Greece is published by Princeton University Press in March.

Refused entry into the United States and currently Visiting Senior Research Fellow at St Antony’s College, Oxford, PROFESSOR TARIQ RAMADAN is one of the leading Islamic thinkers of our time and was named by Time magazine as one of the top 100 most important innovators of the century.

The Messenger: The Meanings of the Life of Muhammad is published by Allen Lane.

Two weeks ago Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe since 1987, celebrated his 83rd birthday with a £600,000 party as his country slumped to rock bottom with inflation running at 1600%. He also gave a lengthy interview in which he apparently made allusions to a successor. These are interesting times for Zimbabwe and there is no better person to speak to about the situation there than PETER GODWIN, the award-winning writer, whose new book tells the story of the disintegration of the country from a privileged perspective. When a Crocodile Eats the Sun: a memoir is published by Picador.

Turkey is a candidate for EU membership but the rise of nationalism in the largely Muslim country threatens the whole project. The assassination in January of an Armenian journalist, Hrant Dink, prompted huge demonstrations in Istanbul against the Turkish law which aims to protect Turkishness by forbidding mention of the massacre of Armenians in the early twentieth century. But many Turkish writers still don’t feel safe and there were rumours last month that the winner of the 2006 Nobel Prize for Literature, Orhan Pamuk, was living in exile in the United States. Many of Orhan’s novels are translated into English by MAUREEN FREELY, who will be talking about Turkey: Is Nationalism on the Rise? at the Frontline Club on 6 March at 7.30pm. She also has a new novel out on 15 March, set in Turkey, called Enlightenment which is published by Marion Boyars.

It is a universal human impulse to try to retrieve what is lost, to want to go back into the past and change it. Award-winning novelist HILARY MANTEL talks about memory, mourning and the work of bringing history 'back to life'. Her talk, Touching Hands with the Lost, takes place on Saturday 10 March at the Theatre Royal, Newcastle. It is part of Opera North’s Orpheus Speaks - a series of talks in which the literary aspects of the four hundred-year-old opera Orfeo and the Orpheus myth are explored.

Following in the footsteps of Darwin and Captain Cook, the eminent geneticist STEVE JONES travels between the waves to find the true state of nature. In his new book he examines what coral has to tell us about the human genome project, cloning and the possibility of a cure for cancer and genetic diseases; what insights it can offer us in the future of trade in oil and other forms of carbon and how it is linked to the fluctuations in weather patterns that have led to destruction along the coasts of the Americas and the Far East. He talks about the exploitation and destruction of coral, under siege from climate change, and that the fate of coral is a warning that we, too, may be close to the point of no return. Coral: A Pessimist in Paradise is published by Little, Brown.

Andrew Marr is joined by Peter Godwin, Maureen Freely, Hilary Mantel and Steve Jones.

It's ten years since the death of Diana, Princess of Wales. Former editor of The New Yorker TINA BROWN gives her take on the tumultuous life and loves of the People's Princess in her new book, The Diana Chronicles. Tina Brown knew the princess personally and describes her transformation from naïve Sloane Ranger to a seasoned player of the world’s press. Brown argues that Diana had no intention of marrying Dodi Fayed and dismisses the conspiracy theories surrounding their deaths. She also claims that Camilla would have turned Prince Charles down if he had proposed during their early courtship, saying she was deeply in love with her first husband Andrew Parker Bowles. The Diana Chronicles is published by Century.

CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS is calling for what he calls a "New Enlightenment". He argues that religion is outdated, entitling his new book God is Not Great. He describes his personal encounters with religion including Anglicanism, the Greek Orthodox Church and Judaism, and his early dislike for compulsory prayers at school. He says he has been writing this book all his life and passionately believes that religion of all kinds is a form of self-delusion. God is Not Great is published by Atlantic Books.

He was one of the most controversial and effective Prime Ministers of the 19th century - the politician and author DOUGLAS HURD talks about his biography of Robert Peel. He talks about the man who was the founder of the modern police force, the father of free trade and a driving force behind globalisation. He also explains Peel’s controversial U-turns over Catholic Emancipation and the Corn Laws, which led to him splitting the Conservative Party which he had ultimately created. Douglas Hurd draws comparisons with the current Conservative leader, David Cameron. Robert Peel: A Biography is published by Weidenfeld and Nicolson.

Sixty years ago a young Russian tank commander invented the AK47, a weapon that was to become synonymous with wars and uprisings from Palestine to South America, from Uganda to Indonesia. Simple enough to be used by a child, it has terrorised civilian populations and become an icon of fear. In his new book, AK47: The Story of the People’s Gun, MICHAEL HODGES describes the history of this weapon that was designed to protect the Russian people from their enemies but was quickly turned against them. Its inventor says he wishes he had invented a lawnmower instead. There are now thought to be more than 70 million AK47s in the world. AK47: The Story of the People’s Gun is published by Sceptre.

When we think of globalisation, we tend to think of it happening somewhere else, by someone else. That’s the view of Open University Professor DOREEN MASSEY in her new book, World City. She argues that London drives globalisation – rather than being a passive victim of it -and says that London needs a new kind of outward-looking politics that accepts that the local now is global. World City is published by Polity Press.

The Dutch government’s commitment to multiculturalism has been exceptional. It has funded separate schools, housing projects, broadcast media and community organizations for Muslim immigrants, all under the umbrella of multiculturalism. But the reality of terrorism and radicalization of Muslim immigrants has shattered that dream. In 2004, Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh was brutally murdered on a busy Amsterdam street. His killer was a young Dutch Moroccan offended by a controversial film about Muslim suppression of women. In his new book, When Ways of Life Collide, PAUL SNIDERMAN argues that if you make the difference between one group and another the focal point of public policy, you increase the sense that each feels different from the other. He says that the Dutch emphasis on multiculturalism has encouraged exclusion rather than inclusion and politicians have misunderstood the very nature of a liberal society. Paul is giving a lecture at Chatham House on 28 June at 5.30pm entitled Europe after 50: Muslim immigrants and the strains of multiculturalism and he is also giving a talk at the RSA entitled When Ways of Life Collide: Multiculturalism and its Discontents on 29 June at 1.00pm. When Ways of Life Collide: Multiculturalism and its Discontents in the Netherlands is co-written with Louk Hagendoorn and published by Princeton University Press.

The 17th Century saw a flowering of Dutch culture and nowhere was this more apparent than in portrait painting. With the emergence of a new middle class of wealthy merchants, portraits became a key way of demonstrating their new-found status. BETSY WIESEMAN is curator of a new exhibition of Dutch portraits opening at the National Gallery in London and talks about the highlights, including works by Rembrandt and Frans Hals. Dutch Portraits: The Age of Rembrandt and Frans Hals runs from 27 June to 16 September.

Andrew Marr is joined by Michael Hodges, Doreen Massey, Paul Sniderman and Betsy Wieseman.

According to the philosopher JOHN GRAY, some of the most destructive movements of the last few centuries have been driven by a secular twist on the Christian myth of an Apocalyse, followed by a new Utopia. In his new book, Black Mass: Apocalyptic Religion and the Death of Utopia, John Gray argues that the faith in Utopia that killed so many is now dead, but it does not mean peace is assured. Instead he believes that apocalyptic religion has emerged at the very heart of global conflict. Black Mass: Apocalyptic Religion and the Death of Utopia is published by Allen Lane.

ERIC HOBSBAWM is one of Britain’s most influential modern historians. He discusses the effects of globalisation, the plight of democracy and the threat of terrorism in the 21st Century and explains why he thinks the campaign to spread democracy will not succeed. He also argues that the age of empire is dead and that we have to find alternative ways of ordering the world. His new book of essays is entitled Globalisation, Democracy and Terrorism and is published by Little, Brown.

The New Crowned Hope festival, first seen in Vienna as part of the Mozart 250th anniversary celebrations in November, opens at the Barbican this week. The festival of dance, film, opera, food and political debate is organised by PETER SELLARS, one of the world’s leading theatre directors. He talks about the new works which were inspired by the major themes Mozart was exploring in music during the last year of his life, from magic and transformation, forgiveness and reconciliation, to recognition of the dead. He also discusses the opera La Passion de Simone, based on the work of French Jewish philosopher Simone Weil, which he is directing. New Crowned Hope at the Barbican runs from 4 July to 12 August and includes the UK premiere of La Passion de Simone on 10 and 12 July and a new opera by John Adams, The Flowering Tree, on 10 and 12 August.

The rich Western world is preaching neo-liberal economics to the developing world while pulling away the ladder to prosperity - that's the view of the leading Cambridge economist HA-JOON CHANG. He argues that forcing poorer countries to open their markets to free trade and foreign investment denies them the essential protection that developed countries themselves enjoyed for their infant industries. The rich nations are being Bad Samaritans, he says, but are they cynical or have they simply forgotten their own history? Bad Samaritans: Rich Nations, Poor Policies and The Threat to the Developing World is published by Random House Business Books and an article by Ha-Joon Chang is in July's edition of Prospect magazine.

The Harvard economist RICHARD PARKER discusses one of the 20th Century's most influential thinkers, J K Galbraith, and asks what his legacy is today. Heavily influenced by Keynesian economics, Galbraith was advisor to three Presidents and Ambassador to India. Richard Parker also discusses newly de-classified documents which suggest that Galbraith had persuaded President Kennedy to pull US troops out of Vietnam, just before he was assassinated. J K Galbraith: A 20th Century Life is published by Old Street Publishing.

The columnist, critic and novelist JOAN SMITH discusses her new novel What Will Survive which is set in 1997 in Lebanon, where a young journalist is investigating the death of an English model turned charity worker.

The poet and novelist ADRIAN MITCHELL discusses his translation of Pedro Calderon de la Barca's seventeenth century verse play The Great Theatre of the World.

The Great Theatre of the World opens at the Arcola Theatre, London from 13 July to 18 August.

AKBAR AHMED, a former High Commissioner of Pakistan and a leading Muslim scholar, has been touring the Islamic world gauging the fears and aspirations of both leaders and citizens. He argues that the West has a fundamental misunderstanding of Islam, tending to see Muslims as a monolithic, fanatical group, intent on destroying the Western way of life. His new book, Journey Into Islam, attempts to portray a more nuanced picture of the Muslim world and advocates a dialogue between the two worlds. Journey Into Islam: The Crisis of Globalization is published by Brookings Institution Press.

Athens is venerated as the cornerstone of Western civilisation – democracy, equality, liberty and freedom of speech. In a new two-part television series, historian BETTANY HUGHES goes in search of the truth about the birth of democracy in ancient Athens 2500 years ago. She discusses the study of man’s first attempt at democracy and reveals that a political system we think of as benign and progressive led to internal conflict, war and empire-building. Athens: The Truth about Democracy is broadcast on Channel 4 on 21 and 28 July at 8.00pm.

There have been 326 victims of British serial killers since 1960. In a new book, PROFESSOR DAVID WILSON examines why certain groups including the poor, elderly, gay, children and sex workers are particularly vulnerable and he argues that society and the state are responsible for their victimisation by failing to protect marginalised people in the community. Serial Killers: Hunting Britons and their Victims, 1960-2006 is published by Waterside Press.

What happens when we die? Does an afterlife exist? The American journalist MARY ROACH searches for the scientific answers to these questions. In her new book, Six Feet Over: Adventures in the Afterlife, she looks at whether science can shed any light on a subject that is normally discussed within the realm of religion. She talks about her encounters with the scientists who weigh souls, engineers, voice recordings, mediums and even her own electro-magnetically induced hallucinations. Six Feet Over: Adventures in the Afterlife is published by Canongate Books.

We are making a mess of energy and this is endangering the planet, says energy analyst WALT PATTERSON. In his new book, Keeping The Lights On: Towards Sustainable Electricity, he discusses how to deliver a genuinely sustainable electricity system for the future. He argues that we have to stop treating electricity as a commodity if we are to address the problems of the climate. Keeping The Lights On: Towards Sustainable Electricity is published by Earthscan.

Quantum physicist JIM AL-KHALILI dives into the science we can’t see, exploring the life of the atom and the story of its discovery. It’s only one ten millionth of a millimetre across, yet it has the power to create the cosmos, or to destroy the world. In his new series Atom, starting on BBC4 on Thursday 26 July at 9.00pm, Jim Al-Khalili recounts the chequered history of the atom and the lives of those who discovered and explored it.

The Nobel Prize-winning scientist Max Perutz founded a small research group in which Francis Crick and James Watson discovered the structure of DNA. Science writer and broadcaster GEORGINA FERRY talks about her biography, Max Perutz and the Secret of Life, and discusses his 22-year quest to reveal the structure of the protein molecule haemoglobin that led to more efficient ways of creating and testing new drugs, as well as his involvement in a secret World War Two project to build aircraft carriers out of ice. Max Perutz and the Secret of Life is published by Chatto & Windus.

DAN HIND is calling for a new Enlightenment in his book The Threat to Reason. He argues that any questioning of the state or corporations leads to being labelled as an enemy to progress, a technophobe or a religious fanatic. He calls for us all to become researchers for truth, counteracting the control of information from those who pay our wages and run our public lives. The Threat To Reason is published by Verso.

Andrew Marr is joined by Walt Patterson, Jim Al-Khalili, Georgina Ferry and Dan Hind.

Andrew Marr sets the cultural agenda for the week. He talks to John Keane about democracy, Katie Mitchell about virgin births and opera, Peter Hall about the vitality of regional theatre and Matthew Gale about Futurism.

Political theorist John Keane argues that democracy is under threat. His latest book, The Life and Death of Democracy, debunks some of the many myths surrounding democracy, starting with its birth hundreds of years before 5th-century Athens. He also makes some bold claims for its future. The 21st century, he argues, far from seeing the 'triumph' of democracy, will see it mutate into many different forms, not all of them desirable. The Life and Death of Democracy is published by Simon and Schuster.

Katie Mitchell will be directing Parthenogenesis, James MacMillan's unusual operatic work about a virgin birth, at the Royal Opera House. It is based on the supposedly true story of a woman injured in a bombing raid on Hanover in 1944. She gave birth to a daughter nine months later, yet claimed she was a virgin. Medical tests were conducted but the doctors could not disprove her account.

Sir Peter Hall's theatre company is having its seventh summer residency at the Theatre Royal Bath. He believes that if you want to see original, intelligent and experimental productions, you should head to regional theatres.

The artwork of the Futurists is often overshadowed by the Cubists, yet Matthew Gale argues that their combination of salon and street art, with their visceral excitement for cities, has had much resonance over the last century. Matthew is curating the Futurism at Tate Modern.

20101227

Andrew Marr celebrates 40 years of Start the Week. When Richard Baker first presented the show in 1970 it was a lively and often chaotic, mix of chat and celebrity knitted together by a weekly theme. Cookery demonstrations, and dancing with Wayne Sleep, rubbed shoulders with Roald Dahl and Sophia Loren discussing what frightens them, and Idi Amin playing the accordion. It was Melvyn Bragg who reinvented the programme 18 years later to make it a forum for ideas. He challenged his guests to explain their views and when guests like Maya Angelou, Francis Crick, Tom Stoppard and Salman Rushdie sat round his table together the debate sparkled. Andrew Marr who has been at the helm for the last 8 years is joined by Richard Baker and Melvyn Bragg to discuss four decades of Start the Week.

As the debate around the border between the Republic and Northern Ireland continues to dominate discussions on Brexit, the historian Diarmaid Ferriter explains how this line became a political battleground. The meandering boundary which cuts through fields and crosses rivers was once dotted with watchtowers and military checkpoints to stop movements of people and goods.

Amol Rajan explores how geology and demography have shaped the modern world. Paul Morland argues that we have underestimated the crucial impact of population changes on global events. He looks at how demography has had a major influence, from world wars to China’s rise; and from the Arab Spring to Brexit.

The prize winning author Karl Ove Knausgaard explores the life and work of a fellow Norwegian artist, the Expressionist Edvard Munch. He tells Tom Sutcliffe that Munch’s work extends far more than his iconic painting The Scream. Knausgaard brings together art history, biography and personal memoir to reflect on what it means to be an artist.

Munch is known as a painter of the inner life and even his landscapes are infused with personal reflection. But at the turn of the twentieth century, while he was looking inward, art schools across Europe were forging new philosophies and were engaging with the wider world. In Germany the Bauhaus movement, founded by Walter Gropius, stood for delight, experiment and creative freedom. Fiona MacCarthy’s new biography of Gropius re-evaluates his intellectual and emotional life. She depicts him at the heights of Bauhaus fame, and through his post-war years in London to his architectural successes in America.

Back in the UK, Charles Rennie Mackintosh was at the centre of a movement based at the Glasgow School of Art. Curator Alison Brown explains how the city became the birthplace of the only Art Nouveau ‘movement’ in the UK. The style and influence of Mackintosh and his disciples has spread throughout the world.

"Art, truth and power"20190121

"

Andrew Marr on beauty and politics in art. Our idea of beauty was shaped by the great Victorian art critic John Ruskin. He thought all people deserved to see beauty every day, and compared, and founded a gallery in Sheffield for local industrial workers. To mark Ruskin's bicentenary, curator Louise Pullen has put together a new exhibition showing how his ideas about art, science, truth and beauty shaped the politics of the day.

"All art is propaganda and ever must be, despite the wailing of the purists," declared WEB Du Bois. The civil rights campaigner, philosopher and social thinker argued that it was an artist's duty to shape a better world. Academic Liam Bright explains why Du Bois thought both artists and scientists had a duty to tell the truth.

In poet Fiona Benson's new volume Vertigo and Ghost, beauty, violence and power are never far apart. Benson's poems depict Zeus as a serial rapist, and capture the claustrophobia of modern domestic life.

And design guru Stephen Bayley considers what creativity is - and what it is for - in his new book How To Steal Fire. As a leading cultural critic, he asks what place beauty and imagination have in modern life.

Curator Alison Brown explains how that city became the birthplace of the only Art Nouveau ‘movement’ in the UK. The style and influence of Mackintosh and his disciples has since spread throughout the world.

Both Bauhaus and Art Nouveau designs became commercially successful and mass produced. But the earlier Arts and Craft Movement of William Morris championed the principle of handmade production. In an extraordinary find, the social historian Tamsin Wimhurst, came across a terraced house in Cambridge owned by a working-class Victorian decorative artist who reproduced the work of Morris for his own pleasure at home. The David Parr House is opened to the public later this year.

Eliza Carthy and Nicholas Hytner: Art for All20170424

Kirsty Wark with Nicholas Hytner, Eliza Carthy, Jennifer Harris and Jules Evans.

On Start the Week Kirsty Wark asks whether it's possible to produce art for all.

She's joined by the former Director of the National Theatre Nicholas Hytner who looks at the balancing act between art and show business but argues for the power of a national theatre to become part of the cultural bloodstream.

The designer Lucienne Day made the link between mass production and fine art, and the curator of an exhibition of her fabrics, Jennifer Harris, says her abstract designs could be seen in households across the country.

Singer-songwriter Eliza Carthy is a member of one of British folk's great dynasties, and has helped popularise folk music for new generations, combining tradition with innovation.

Nietzsche suggested that 'art raises its head where religions decline' and the philosopher Jules Evans who studies human ecstasy, asks whether art galleries and theatres can really help us come together, lose control and connect with something beyond ourselves.

Grayson Perry at the Charleston Festival2012060420120604 (R4)

Grayson Perry at the Charleston Festival2012060420120604 (R4)

In a specially recorded edition of Start the Week Andrew Marr is at the Charleston Festival with Grayson Perry, Virginia Nicholson, Faramerz Dabhoiwala and Janice Galloway. As the home of Vanessa Bell, Virginia Nicholson's grandmother, Charleston was a by-word for sexual freedom and the Bohemian lifestyle. But Dabhoiwala insists that far from the 1920s being the time of real sexual revolution, that honour goes to the 18th century, the origin of our modern attitudes to sex. Janice Galloway brings the story up-to-date as she relives her adolescence in small town Scotland in the 1970s. And the celebrated potter Grayson Perry explores changing social attitudes in relation to taste: the choices people make in the things they buy and wear, and uses these details of modern life to create six tapestries, called 'The Vanity of Small Differences'.

Producer: Katy Hickman.

How the World Thinks20181126

The director Paulette Randall brings to the stage the ultimate tale of sacrifice in the pursuit of power: Doctor Faustus. She tells Andrew Marr how, in coveting fame, power and knowledge, he sells his soul to the devil. This bargain with the devil is one of the most iconic cultural motifs in the Western tradition.

The poet and writer Ann Wroe looks to another founding story of Christianity, that of St Francis of Assisi. Born into luxury he forsakes it all after hearing the voice of God commanding him to rebuild the Church and live in poverty. Wroe writes his life story in verse and see echoes of it all around her today.

The philosopher Julian Baggini sees such ancient stories as helping to explore and explain how people think in the West. But in his new book, How the World Thinks, he admits his own failures to learn about the stories and early philosophies which have come out of the East. Without them, he argues, you cannot understand the development of distinct cultures around the world.

The novelist and essayist Amit Chaudhuri has looked far and wide for his influences, from Nobel laureate Tagore and filmmaker Satyajit Ray to Cervantes’s Don Quixote. In The Origins of Dislike he explores the way writers understand their work both in antithesis to, and affinity with, past writers and movements from around the world.

Ice and Snow20181224

On Christmas Eve, Andrew Marr explores the mysteries of snow and ice. Michelle Paver's novels dwell in the darkest places: an Arctic hut in midwinter haunted by ghosts, an isolated mountain peak, and a prehistoric frozen forest. She explains the appeal of these inhospitable settings, and asks why the cold still terrifies us.

Ben Saunders knows the sounds and smells of ice better than most. As one of the world's leading polar explorers he has skied to the North Pole and completed Scott and Shackleton's aborted trip to the South Pole. He describes the exhaustion, frustration and wonder of life on a frozen sea.

Materials scientist Mark Miodownik knows that liquids are not to be trusted, even when frozen solid. His latest book, Liquid: The Delightful and Dangerous Substances That Flow Through Our Lives, unpicks the cracks, creaks and crystals of ice.

Poet and writer Nancy Campbell set out from the world's northernmost museum to understand our fascination with ice and snow. Her new book, The Library of Ice: Readings from a Cold Climate,brings to life the people who dwell in these icy landscapes, many of which are now disappearing.

Kate Tempest: Everyday Epic20170508

Andrew Marr with Kate Tempest, Tracy Chevalier, Hanif Kureishi and Lewis Hyde.

On Start the Week Andrew Marr talks to the writer and performer Kate Tempest about her desire to bring out the epic in everyday lives, and to show the poetry in lived experience. Tracy Chevalier has taken the themes of Shakespeare's Othello and transported them to a US elementary school, while Hanif Kureishi mines the dark world of jealousy and revenge in his latest novel. Lewis Hyde looks back to mythical mischief makers from Hermes to Loki to celebrate modern day rule breakers as the shapers of culture.

Language and Culture20190304

Andrew Marr discusses the complex interplay between language and culture. The prize-winning American author Jhumpa Lahiri has spent many years living in Italy immersing herself in the language. She has brought together 40 short story writers – many translated into English for the first time – in a collection that reflects the regional landscapes, private passions and political events of her adopted country over the past century.

April De Angelis is a writer steeped in translation and adaptation: she brought Elena Ferrante’s novels of Neapolitan life to the stage. And she is now involved in the English National Opera’s production of The Merry Widow – a French comic play re-imagined by an Austro-Hungarian composer.

The power of translation is explored in a new exhibition at the Bodleian Library curated by the academic Katrin Kohl. At the centre is the story of the Tower of Babel, an origin myth in the Bible which explains why people speak different languages. Kohl argues that studying how a story is translated from one language to another allows us to glimpse the rich diversity of life and culture around the world.

Many people now rely on computers to translate from one language to another. The mathematician Marcus du Sautoy looks at how AI is being programmed to be creative in language and the arts, and what that means for the human touch.

Michael Sandel on Money and Morality20120521

Andrew Marr and guests Michael Sandel, Diane Coyle and Grigory Yavlinsky.

Michael Sandel on Money and Morality20120521

On Start the Week Andrew Marr discusses the relationship between markets and morals with the political philosopher Michael Sandel. In his latest book, What Money Can't Buy, Sandel questions the dominance of the financial markets in our daily lives, in which everything has a price. But the economist Diane Coyle stands up for her much maligned profession, and points to the many benefits of a market economy. The Russian economist Grigory Yavlinksy argues against viewing the world of money as separate from culture and society: he believes the financial crisis was merely a symptom of a wider moral collapse, and that it is time to examine the way we live.

Producer: Katy Hickman.

National myths with Neil MacGregor20181217

Kirsty Wark explores national stories and myths – from both inside and outside a country’s borders.

Neil MacGregor discusses how Dickens, Monty Python and the Suez Crisis have influenced the way Britain is perceived abroad. He visits five different countries to find out which historical events, cultural influences and objects have shaped the way how others see us. The answers may well surprise people back home.

Sweden has a strong sense of its own national identity: it boasts the world’s oldest free press and prides itself on its special brand of social democracy. But the journalist Kajsa Norman looks beyond this utopian myth to expose the darkness in the Swedish soul. She reveals what happens to those who dare to dissent from consensus.

Japan’s national image abroad is one of staid tradition mixed with bizarre pop culture, and the samurai warrior alongside the grey mass of ‘salarymen’. But the academic Christopher Harding argues there is far more to Japanese society than these enduring clichés. He looks at how Japan has been reinventing itself over the last century and a half, and the often radical and outspoken resistance to conformity.

He looks at how demography has had a major influence, from world wars to China’s rise; and from the Arab Spring to Brexit.

In the distant past people could walk all the way from continental Europe to England through the ancient region of Doggerland. Julia Blackburn scours the Suffolk coastline for this lost land which was submerged by rising sea levels around 5000 BC.

As the debate around the border between the Republic and Northern Ireland continues to dominate discussions on Brexit, the historian Diarmaid Ferriter explains how this line became a political battleground. The meandering boundary which cuts through fields and crosses rivers was once dotted with watchtowers and military checkpoints to stop movements of people and goods.

Post-Truth and Revolution20170515

Amol Rajan with Matthew D'Ancona, Claire Wardle, China Mieville and Lijia Zhang.

On Start the Week Amol Rajan seeks the truth in a post-truth world. The political columnist Matthew D'Ancona paints a dystopian picture in which trust has evaporated, conspiracy theories thrive, and feelings trump fact. He argues that the very foundations of democracy are under threat. Claire Wardle is hoping her organisation First Draft will equip users to verify the sources of stories and tackle misinformation online. But what happens when the peddlers of misinformation are state-sponsored? The Chinese writer Lijia Zhang spent a decade working in a rocket factory and her memoir, Socialism is Great!, reflects the great social transformation in China since the 1980s, and the shifts in trust and truth which mirrored such changes. The writer China Miéville, who is best known for his stories of urban surrealism, turns his attention to the story of the Russian Revolution.

Power in Politics20181203

Today's battle for political power began with Thomas Cromwell, argues Diarmaid MacCulloch. In a landmark new biography he tells Tom Sutcliffe how Henry VIII's chief reformer claimed power from Europe and the pope - and gave it to an English parliament instead. But Cromwell is one of the most notorious figures in history, admired as a master statesman and reviled as a Machiavel.

Acclaimed playwright James Graham dramatises the political power-play of the Brexit campaign in his new Channel 4 drama. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Dominic Cummings, the driving force behind Vote Leave, Graham depicts ten weeks of machinations that forever changed Britain's relationship with Europe.

Isabel Hardman, Assistant Editor of the Spectator, has followed the political upheavals of Brexit closely. In her book Why We Get the Wrong Politicians she looks at the demands made on MPs and how this has changed over time. She argues that their role has shifted from legislator to constituency worker - and that our political system is worse as a result.

And Professor Steven Fielding looks back at the MPs have been depicted in culture. But where novelist Anthony Trollope's fictional Prime Minster is a hero, Fileding argues that the MPs found in The Thick of It and Yes Minister are uniformly venal and cowardly.

Searching for happiness20190107

Andrew Marr starts the year in search of happiness with the behavioural scientist and happiness professor Paul Dolan. Dolan has advised the government on how to measure wellbeing, and in his latest book Happy Ever After argues that we’ve been sold a lie about the sources of happiness. The route to fulfilment may be far more unexpected that we thought.

The writer Laura Freeman deplores what she calls the current Pollyana tendencies to ‘keep smiling’ via the mood-tracker apps on your phone. Freeman recounts how she herself found an appetite for life, after years of suffering with anorexia, through her love of reading.

The science journalist Linda Geddes explores the impact of sunlight on our minds and bodies. In Chasing the Sun she looks at its significance in improving our health, sleep, productivity and mood.

But what if our mood is really affected not by our mind, but our bodies? Professor Edward Bullmore has studied the link between mental health and physical inflammation, and argues that we need to look more closely at our immune system in the treatment of depression.

Spain in Crisis20120514

On Start the Week Andrew Marr discusses Spain's economic crisis, and the legacy of Franco. In the last decade Spain has begun to unearth some of the mass graves of the hundreds of thousands of people who were killed in the 1930s by both sides in the civil war. Paul Preston discusses what he calls the Spanish Holocaust and its impact on Spain today. Maria Delgado argues its significance transcends politics, and can be felt strongly in Spain's cultural landscape. The MEP Daniel Hannan sees the country's strong support for Europe as the legacy of repression following the civil war, but believes that its present financial crisis would be eased by rejecting the euro.

The Age of Spectacle?20170417

Andrew Marr with Tom Dyckhoff, Takeshi Hayatsu, Anissa Helou and Charles Spence.

On Start the Week Andrew Marr explores the fashions and fads in architecture and food over the last fifty years. In 'The Age of Spectacle' the design critic Tom Dyckhoff explores how consumer culture has impacted on the building of our cities, from iconic architecture on a grand scale to soulless shopping centres and designer homes. The average life span of a family home in Japan is just 25 years: although the architect Takeshi Hayatsu regrets the destruction of so much of Japan's architectural heritage, he reflects that it's created a boon in innovate designs on a small scale. Innovations also abound in food technology and the experimental psychologist Charles Spence reveals how chefs can use science to influence diners and their taste buds, but the food writer Anissa Helou asks for a return to simplicity, away from the latest trends of 'molecular' techniques and foraged ingredients.

The battle against so-called Islamic State20190311

David Nott's holiday plans are not like most. For 25 years the surgeon has used unpaid leave to volunteer as a war doctor. His work has taken him from Sarajevo under siege to rebel-held Aleppo, and to the aftermath of natural disasters in Haiti and Nepal. He tells Kirsty Wark how a combination of bravery, compassion and the thrill of danger inspired him to risk his life helping others.

Azad Cudi had war forced upon him as a conscript in the Iranian army. A decade later he volunteered in the fight for an independent Kurdistan: as a sniper fighting against so-called Islamic State. His memoir, Long Shot, describes the fighters, activists and intellectuals he worked alongside. He asks what will happen to the Kurdish cause as Western powers look to pull out of Syria and Iraq.

Men are not the only volunteers in the Middle East - and the causes that influence people are not always positive. Joana Cook from the International Centre for Radicalisation Studies has examined the large number of women and teenagers who have become "affiliates" of the so-called Islamic State. Some women were inspired by the healthcare, education and job opportunities offered to volunteers. Others became powerful agents of radicalisation. Cook urges politicians to consider these nuances when they decide what to do with volunteers who now wish to return home.

The morality of public duty and public service is the topic of an upcoming lecture by Claire Foster-Gilbert, director of the Westminster Abbey Institute. She argues that public servants in politics and beyond make moral choices every day; but that if we fail to scrutinise these properly, we could fail prey to anger, vengeance and injustice.

The Body Beautiful20190218

We have been obsessed with the ideal body since Renaissance artists rediscovered nudity, says art historian Jill Burke. She tells Andrew Marr how artists including Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Titian established rigid beauty standards and an obsession with the body that we still live with today.

Our image of power was hugely influenced by the Elizabethan miniaturist Nicholas Hilliard. To mark his 400th anniversary, historian Elizabeth Goldring reexamines the artist who painted all the principal rulers of his day, including Queen Elizabeth and James I. Hilliard's tiny images encapsulated political power in a portrait.

Elizabethan ideas of power and beauty are unpicked in Christopher Marlowe's play Edward II, the story of a king whose homosexuality brings his downfall. Tom Stuart plays the titular role at The Globe and has written a new sequel, After Edward, exploring the persecution and politicisation of homosexuals today.

Playwright Martin Sherman wrote the iconic play about gay persecution, Bent, and has returned to themes of desire and beauty in his new work. Gently Down the Stream addresses the challenges of love between the generations, and shows the emotional cost of emulating Renaissance beauty ideals.

The Digital Future20120507

Andrew Marr with Nick Harkaway, Anab Jain, Charles Arthur and Simon Ings.

The Digital Future20120507

On Start the Week Andrew Marr looks into the digital future. Nick Harkaway dismisses fears of a digital dystopia in which distracted people, caught between the real world and the screen world, are under constant surveillance. He believes we need to engage with the computers we have created, and shape our own destiny. Simon Ings is the editor of a new digital magazine, Arc, which uses science fiction to explore and explain what the future might hold for society. While Anab Jain's design company uses scenarios and prototypes to probe emerging technologies and ideas, from headsets to help the blind to see, to everyday objects with their very own internet connection. And Charles Arthur investigates the battle for dominance of the internet with Apple, Google and Microsoft struggling to stay on top, and asks what that means for the rest of us.

The health of science20190128

There is nothing new for chemistry to discover, says Bernie Bulkin. In Solving Chemistry: A Scientist's Journey, the former Head of Science at BP argues that an unprecedented event has happened: a branch of science has made all the major discoveries it is likely to make. He tells Tom Sutcliffe what this means for chemistry - and for science more broadly.

Medicine is in the midst of 'a biomedical revolution' says Professor Sir Robert Lechler. His own field of kidney transplants has been transformed by our new understanding of the immune system. He has helped to curate Spare Parts, an exhibition at the Science Gallery that poses the question: how many transplants could we have before we were no longer ourselves?

Elizabeth Pisani has watched interest in different diseases rise and fall. As an epidemiologist she charts the impact that press attention and public grants have on medical research, with some becoming fashionable while in others treatments lag behind. And she warns that scientists too often fail to take account of the human context when delivering medicines.

Astrophysicist Jo Dunkley assesses our understanding of the universe in a concise new guide. But the universe is 85% dark matter - and we still know very little about this. She draws attention to the brilliant female scientists who contributed to breakthroughs in physics, but whose contributions have been forgotten along the way.

The mind unravelling20190211

How far does evolution explain mental health? The psychiatrist Randolph Nesse tells Kirsty Wark that negative emotions make sense in certain situations but can become excessive. He argues that positioning disorders in light of natural selection helps explain the ubiquity of human suffering - and may help in finding new paths for relieving it.

The neuropsychologist AK Benjamin investigates the boundaries of sanity and madness in his book, Let Me Not Be Mad. Through a series of consultations with patients, he explores the mind unravelling at the seams. But the question remains whether this unravelling mind belongs to the doctor or the patient.

The poet George Szirtes looks at the damaging impact of international events on a single family, in his memoir of his mother Magda. The Photographer At Sixteen follows Magda from her teenage life in Hungary, through political uprisings, internment in two concentration camps and transition to life in England. He explores the effect of an unravelling world on a family's mental health.

In Arthur Miller’s play, The American Clock, directed by Rachel Chavkin, another family is swept along in a chaotic, damaged world. As the stock market crashes in 1929 the play asks what happens to those who have built their lives on an unwavering faith in capitalism.

Trees: a wood wide web20181210

Trees may have vibrant inner lives and certainly appear to have individual personalities, claims the forester-cum-writer Peter Wollheben. In his bestselling book, The Hidden Life of Trees, he uncovers an underground social network of communication between trees.

In the late 1990s the journalist Ruth Pavey purchased four acres of scrub woodland in Somerset, and set about transforming this derelict land into a sanctuary for woodland plants, creatures and her own thoughts.

The natural world comes alive in the poetry of Kathleen Jamie. Although her landscape is often her Scottish homeland, politics, history and human folly are never far
away, as she asks how we can live more equably with nature.

And breathing clean air is the goal of Gary Fuller’s book, The Invisible Killer. He studies the rising threat of air pollution from London’s congested streets to wood-burning damage in New Zealand.

Understanding China20190318

The Chinese journalist and activist Xinran tells the story of China since the start of the 20th century through four generations of one family. She tells Andrew Marr how the family lived through enormous social upheaval, and reveals how traditional values started to unravel with the tide of modernity.

The academic Roel Sterckx looks back beyond the last century to ancient Chinese philosophers and thinkers. He argues that in order to understand modern China we need to understand its past. The practice of power, government and social harmony has a long tradition.

It is seventy years since Mao founded the People’s Republic of China and Julia Lovell re-evaluates Mao's philosophy both at home and abroad. For decades Maoism has been dismissed in the West as an outdated historical and political phenomenon, and yet his ideas remain central to China’s Communist government - and continue to influence people around the world.

Not only Chinese ideas have spread throughout the globe: the latest play from director David K S Tse is based on the lives of Chinese people who moved to the UK. From Shore to Shore is staged in Chinese takeaways around the country and blends English, Mandarin and Cantonese, to tell the story of three journeys to find a home.

Violence and Conflict20190114

The prize-winning writer John Lanchester considers the political endgame of a fractious world in his new novel, The Wall. He tells Amol Rajan why he has written a dystopian fable in which the young distrust the old, and the world appears broken.

But just how violent are we as a species? The primatologist Richard Wrangham believes there is a 'goodness paradox': at an individual level we have evolved to become a more peaceful animal, especially compared to our closest relatives, the chimpanzee; but our ability to organise and plan an attack has made us lethal.

The ancient Assyrians celebrated every detail of cruelty, massacre and torture, including skinning prisoners alive, as they built their empire and conquered their enemies. The academic Eleanor Robson looks back at the reign of the King Ashurbanipal from the 7th century BC, immortalised in an exhibition at the British Museum.

Shortly after the King’s death the Empire fell. Dr Patricia Lewis is an expert on international security and studies the ebb and flow of wars across the world from chemical warfare to cyber-attacks. She looks ahead to the major conflicts to watch in the coming year.

Wendell Berry: The Natural World20170501

Andrew Marr with Wendell Berry, Paul Kingsnorth and Kate Raworth.

On Start the Week Andrew Marr talks to the American writer, poet and farmer Wendell Berry. In his latest collection of essays, The World-Ending Fire, Berry speaks out against the degradation of the earth and the violence and greed of unbridled consumerism, while evoking the awe he feels as he walks the land in his native Kentucky.

His challenge to the false call of progress and the American Dream is echoed in the writing of Paul Kingsnorth, whose book Confessions of a Recovering Environmentalist eschews the grand narrative of a global green movement to focus on what matters - the small plot of land beneath his feet.

Kate Raworth calls herself a renegade economist and, like Berry and Kingsnorth, challenges orthodox thinking, as she points to new ways to understand the global economy which take into consideration human prosperity and ecological sustainability.

Who is watching you?20190204

Society is at a turning point, warns Professor Shoshana Zuboff. Democracy and liberty are under threat as capitalism and the digital revolution combine forces. She tells Andrew Marr how new technologies are not only mining our minds for data, but radically changing them in the process. As Facebook celebrates its 15th birthday she examines what happens when a few companies have unprecedented power and little democratic oversight.

Although behavioural data is constantly being abstracted by tech companies, John Thornhill, Innovations Editor at the Financial Times, questions whether they have yet worked out how to use it effectively to manipulate people. And he argues that the technological revolution has brought many innovations which have benefitted society.

The award-winning writer Ece Temelkuran has warned readers about rising authoritarianism in her native Turkey. In her new book, How To Lose a Country, she widens that warning to the rest of the world. She argues that right-wing populism and nationalism do not appear already fully-formed in government - but creep insidiously in the shadows, unchallenged and underestimated until too late.
