Brilliant Mistakes, Blessed Failures (10 July 2016)  21165


Artist Grayson Perry has said that ‘creativity is mistakes’. Journalist Abdul-Rehman Malik agrees, and explores through poetry and prose how mistakes, although a reminder of human imperfection, nevertheless have the ability to reveal something new and hidden.

The programme features the music of Ella Fitzgerald, Elvis Costello and Puccini, and readings from theologian Paula Gooder, the Qu’ran, and the Old and New Testaments.
