All in the Mind: A Farewell to God

Hay Festival 1999, 
The eminent broadcaster premises a rejection of "belief". Go down the honest, straightforward and admirably clear road which Kennedy has chosen and say that there is no external force of divinity other than the longings of the human mind. Or say with Bishop Rowan Williams: "If we are not self-created, we are answerable to a truth we don't produce"

Mary Loudon and Sameer Rahim talk to Olivia Cole

Fiction: First Novels

Hay Festival 2019, 

A conversation with two very experienced and acclaimed writers venturing for the first time into fiction. Loudon’s My House is Falling Down is a vivid and compelling novel about a modern love triangle that asks some provocative questions: what happens when you tell the whole truth in marriage? Is it still infidelity if nobody lies? Can you really love two people at once? Rahim’s Asghar and Zahra is a funny, sympathetic and very human novel about the first year of a marriage, and the difficulties of reconciling the sometimes conflicting demands of family, religion and society.

Roy Strong

The Elizabethan Image: An Introduction to English Portraiture, 1558–1603

Hay Festival 2019, 

The historian presents a lavish introduction to the Elizabethan aesthetic. Beginning with the great portrait of the Queen in grand procession with her Garter Knights, Strong explores chivalry, the changing structure of society, the complexities of imagery and heraldic symbols, and the richness of the Elizabethan imagination. Significantly, these paintings were personal commissions by private individuals and not for public viewing, so they speak volumes about the people who commissioned, painted and saw them. Strong was Director of the National Portrait Gallery 1967–1973 and of the Victoria & Albert Museum 1974–1984.

Climate Change and Wetland Archaeology

Hay Festival 2019, 

Historically often considered as worthless morasses, peat bogs cover three per cent of the world’s land surface. They are unique records of history and today they are recognised as beautiful habitats providing environmental benefits from biodiversity to climate regulation. However, they are threatened by drainage, land reclamation for agriculture and peat cutting for fuel, which has significantly reduced the extent and condition of these ecosystems on a global scale. Transforming the management of wetland, peatland and waterlogged sites is crucial. Henry Chapman is Professor of Archaeology at the University of Birmingham and is a regular guest on archaeological programmes including C4’s Time Team.
