LESSONS FROM THE PAST In Bright Air Black, American writer David Vann transports us back to the 13th century BC to bring to life a fascinating and notorious woman: Medea. In The Children of Jocasta, Radio 4 broadcaster Natalie Haynes offers a stunning reimagining of the Oedipus and Antigone stories from the points of view of the women whom the myths overlook. Two brilliant authors promoting the magic of the classics. Chaired by Charlotte Higgins.
