Inside the Human Zoo: The Unreal World of Reality TV
Michael Buerk is one of Britain’s leading and most respected broadcast journalists and a recent jungle participant on I’m a Celebrity: Get Me Out of Here. Perhaps best-known for his powerful reports from the 1984 famine in Ethiopia, he has worked as a BBC foreign correspondent and presenter for more than 30 years, including anchoring the BBC’s main evening news programme from 1989 to 2003. In this candid exposé, Michael reflects on celebrity culture, the vapid world of reality TV and the present trajectory of the British media.

A Conversation in Music & Words
Brought to public attention by winning the BBC Young Musician of the Year in 1994, Natalie Clein has gone on to establish a reputation as a fine concerto soloist as well as a dedicated chamber musician. Over the years she has explored new ways of presenting concerts, including collaborations with author Jeanette Winterson and dancer Carlos Acosta. For her Festival appearance, she brings to the warm and intimate space of St Cross Church a conversation of music and words, featuring solo cello suites by Bach and Britten, and readings from Plato to John Cage by her sister, actor Louisa Clein.
