Celebrating voices marginalised by mainstream culture, Maxine talks to the most controversial band in Britain, Sleaford Mods.

Maxine Peake to discuss female actors with Vicky Featherstone on BBC2 show

Maxine Peake will discuss women on stage and screen with arts figures including Royal Court artistic director Vicky Featherstone in the first episode of a new culture magazine show.

The actor will edit and present the first episode of Artsnight on BBC2, which was previously announced at the launch of BBC’s Get Creative drive.

Jessica Hynes and film directors Carol Morley and Clio Barnard will join the discussion about female actors, and the episode – centred around revolutionary voices – will also feature a segment celebrating the life of playwright Shelagh Delaney.

Guest editors for future episodes will be Sunday Times journalist Lynn Barber, writer Armando Iannucci and Tate Modern director Chris Dercon.

Producer John Mullens told The Stage: “We wanted to get exciting people to help us shape a programme. So the inspiration was trying to get their take on culture, because we thought it would be quite a different take on culture than a traditional arts programme.

“And they’ve proved it really – they’ve come up with the sort of ideas that we wouldn’t necessarily, because they’ve got their own passions.”

Artsnight is part of the BBC’s Get Creative scheme, which aims to celebrate and boost the nation’s creativity.

Kim Shillinglaw, the controller of BBC2 and BBC4, said: “We need a new generation of arts programmes that will sit at the heart of the prime time schedule, engage and surprise the public, and be bold in their storytelling and ambitious in their content.”

She added: “We will see more drama, live events and documentary. I hope to reach not only those who already love the arts, but also draw in new converts to the joy that the arts bring.”

The episode will air after Newsnight on BBC2 on March 6 at 11pm.

BBC Radio 4 Afternoon Drama: Katie Hims – Betsy Coleman

Betsy Coleman signs up to do memory research for a bit of extra cash, but she finds that her memories are so vivid that revisiting her past becomes compulsive, particularly when she gets to spend some virtual time with her late Mother.

Betsy …. Maxine Peake
David ….. Benedict Wong
Young Betsy ….. Shannon Flynn
Mick ….. Ralph Ineson
Carla ….. Alison Pettit
Des ….. Tony Bell
Julie ….. Christine Kavanagh

Written by Katie Hims
Directed by Mary Peate

When Betsy Coleman was 11 years old, her father was convicted of murdering her mother. Now 37, Betsy has drifted through her life, committing to nothing and no one. She sees an ad looking for volunteers to take part in some neurological research at the local University, and, in need of some extra cash, she signs up.

She quite likes the look of the geeky research scientist, David, but mostly she loves going back into her memories, particularly those which involve her late mother. Against his better judgment, David lets her do more tests. But then things start to get out of hand…

Artsnight 1/4 – to premiere on Friday 6th March on BBC Two at 11pm

Coming a year after The Review Show was put out to grass, this new weekly magazine show is clearly part of director-general Tony Hall’s bid to “put arts centre stage at the BBC”. Taking a topical look at arts and culture in the UK, each programme is curated by a different guest editor who, presumably, will bring their own opinions, interests and tastes to the subject matter. First in the hot seat is actress Maxine Peake, who received critical acclaim for her recent gender-bending version of Hamlet.

The Thick of It’s Armando Iannucci, Sunday Times journalist Lynn Barber and director of Tate Modern Chris Dercon are scheduled to present future shows.

About this programme

1/4. New series. Actress Maxine Peake celebrates voices marginalised by mainstream culture as she curates the opening episode of this arts programme. She talks to Nottingham-based electropunk duo Sleaford Mods, discusses the role of women in television with an all-female panel including actress Jessica Hynes, and explores the life and legacy of Salford playwright and screenwriter Shelagh Delaney.
