Martin Rees on Night Waves

05 December 2012

Michael Grandage, Artificial Intelligence, Jonas Mekas

Matthew Sweet speaks to acclaimed director Michael Grandage whose theatre company launches with a new production of Peter Nichols's celebrated play Privates on Parade.

As a new centre in Cambridge is set up to assess the dangers that might arise from progress in artificial intelligence, Matthew Sweet talks to one of its founders Sir Martin Rees and sustainability innovator Rachel Armstrong to assess whether our mastery in technology could mean that the intelligence of man could soon become left behind.

And Jonas Mekas, film-maker, artist, poet, and a leading figure of avant-garde and experimental cinema, joins Matthew to discuss his remarkable and prolific sixty-year career.

That's all in Night Waves with Matthew Sweet on BBC Radio 3 at 10pm.
