Neolithic Britain: The Transformation of Social Worlds

Hay Festival 2018, 

The Neolithic in Britain was a period of fundamental change: human communities were transformed, collectively owning domesticated plants and animals, and inhabiting a richer world of material things: timber houses and halls, pottery vessels, polished flint and stone axes, and massive monuments of earth and stone. Equally important was the development of a suite of new social practices, and an emphasis on descent, continuity and inheritance. These innovations set in train social processes that culminated with the construction of Stonehenge, the most remarkable surviving structure from prehistoric Europe. The celebrated archaeologists launch their new book today at Hay.

The new blockbuster show at the V&A begins to imagine where our society might be headed. Cute but intelligent robots, massive unmanned aircraft that deliver internet access, crowdfunded buildings, tools printed in space, mysterious black boxes that understand human genetic codes – how can these objects affect the way we live, learn and love? And how are they challenging our understanding of what it means to be an individual, a citizen, a crowd or a species? Hunt is the Director and Hyde is the Curator of Contemporary Architecture and Urbanism at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Diana Athill, Andrea Ashworth, John Walsh

Memoir

Hay Festival 2000, 
Athill is one of publishings legends. She worked for the BBC throughout the second world war and then helped Andre Deutsch establish the publishing company that bore his name. For almost fifty years she was widely regarded as one of the finest editors in London working with Naipaul, Jean Rhys, Gitta Sereby and Brian Moore. She was also a considerable and unjustly neglected writer. Two of what she called her 'documentary books,' Instead of a Letter and After a Funeral anticipated the modern memoir in their directness and intimacy. Ashworth's remarkable memoir of a very disturbed 1970s childhood Once in a House of Fire is hailed as a searing masterpiece. Walsh's The Falling Angels is a stunning portrait of his Irish youth in Battersea, and gives a beautifully rendered account of his mother's death.

Rainforest: Dispatches from Earth’s Most Vital Frontlines

Hay Festival 2018, 

Rainforests are the lungs of our planet – regulators of the Earth's temperature and weather. They are also home to 50 per cent of the world's animals and plants – which for centuries have been the source of many of our key medicines. And yet we’ve all heard of their systematic destruction; the razing of trees to make way for cattle or plantations of oil palms, the disenfranchisement of indigenous peoples, and the corruption that leads to illegal logging and pollution. But the great environmentalist tells the other, inspirational story we’ve almost never heard: what is being done, and can be done in future, to protect the forests and the 1.6 billion people who depend upon them.

Guth Gafa International Documentary Festival presents: The Stranger

Screening

Kells 2015, 

Directed by Neasa Ní Chianáín. Duration 80 minutes.

A riveting and haunting documentary about Neal McGregor, a 44-year-old English artist who died in the stone shed where he lived on the small Donegal island of Inisbofin. He left behind only volumes of secret diaries and animal carvings. The Irish-speaking islanders knew little of Neal during the eight years he lived there. This is a documentary about memory and perception, a journey to capture an unusual portrait of a man, living on the edge, both physically and mentally, and the insular Irish-speaking island community he lived among. Followed by a Q&A with director Neasa Ní Chianáin.
