The Sunday Times Culture Magazine is the definitive weekly guide to the world of arts, books and entertainment, say the publishers.
Each week, The Sunday Times Culture Show will aim to bring viewers everything they love from the magazine and more: interviews with some of the biggest names in film, television, theatre and music; a range of reviews, previews and features on the UK theatre, art and music scene.
Miquita Oliver says: “Over the past 18 months, the lack of culture in our lives has been felt across the world. Music, theatre, art, film: these things matter. Now, more than ever, we need inspiration and nourishment in our lives. I am so excited to bring back that world to our screens.”
Grant Tucker said: “The Sunday Times Culture Magazine is the must-read publication for lovers of the arts, so to bring this institution to life on screen is an honour.”
Albertine Rae is Executive Producer of The Culture Show. Times Radio Programme Director Tim Levell is Commissioning Executive, with editorial direction from The Sunday Times Editor, Emma Tucker, and Executive Editor & Culture Editor, Ben Preston.
Ben Preston added: “Culture in all its forms is supremely important to the readers of The Sunday Times. The Culture Show brings a new dimension to our unsurpassed cultural coverage.”
Tim Levell added: “The Times and The Sunday Times are renowned for their trusted, quality journalism. Times Radio, and hugely successful podcasts like Stories of our times, have created new and much loved audio opportunities for existing and new audiences to get closer to the brands.”
In the first episode, David Baddiel discusses his latest obsession - the weird world of internet trolls - and talks about how his social media addiction inspired his nationwide tour. The show will also go behind the scenes at Frieze Festival, one of the world’s most influential contemporary art fairs, and Camilla Long provides a guide to what to watch and what to swerve.
The Sunday Times Culture Show will be available on The Times and The Sunday Times website and on the YouTube channel from 2pm every Friday.
