In Culture Catch Up this episode: the songs of Scottish singer/songwriter Jackie Leven, a tip for the Christmas number one (it’s not Adele), recommendations for The Dig, and TV series Ted Lasso and Criminal: UK, plus a brief review of American Dirt, by Jeanine Cummins. The Hidden Life of Trees, Cloud Atlas, Catch 22 and The Luminaries are just some of the books we’ve given up on. Find out which ones our readers abandoned and why!
Talfryn Thomas, Harry Andrews, Imogen Hassall, Brian Glover and more: we tell some stories of character actors in film, theatre and advertisements. Their names you might not know, their faces may be much more familiar.
And one factual error.. five OAP bonus points if you spot it!
