Review by:
Amber Rolt

Kirsty Wark welcomes guests Paul Morley, Mark Ravenhill and Denise Mina. Top of their list is The Wolf Of Wall Street, which critics have called a flick of sex- and drug-fuelled decadence. This will be followed by a discussion of a documentary that also has connotations with drug abuse – The Armstrong Lie. This was originally scripted to glorify Lance Armstrong’s cancer battle, but now depicts the truth of what he did, following his confession. 

Martin Creed’s new exhibition, theatre production Blurred Lines and Stewart Foster's debut novel We Used to Be Kings are the other topics on the table.
