English by Ben Fogle review – Marmite, queuing and weather2h English by Ben Fogle review – Marmite, queuing and weather
A lyrical portrait of Englishness takes in waxed jackets, cheese rolling and Wimbledon but fails to look outside the white, middle-class bubbleThere is, as various writers have noted over the years, something inherently contradictory about lavishing praise on Englishness. The English are understated, polite and self-deprecating – more comfortable apologising than blowing our own trumpets. As Ben Fogle points out in his book, we love heroic failures and gravitate endlessly towards the underdog. The English somehow manage to bring these qualities to the very act of

Earth: One Amazing Day review – wild pussycats and daft zebras run riot5h Earth: One Amazing Day review – wild pussycats and daft zebras run riot
Robert Redford narrates this high-def documentary about wild animals that eschews a Werner Herzog-style emphasis on the brutality of nature This perfectly serviceable and somewhat conventional documentary tracks the daily struggle to survive for an assortment of wild animals. Adhering to the tried and tested tropes of nature documentaries, this one offers a discreet set of vignettes featuring assorted fauna in the full spectrum of landscapes (tropical, arctic, deserts and so on), usually in danger from predators or environmental risks. It subtextually reinforces the usual message about the diversity and resilience of nature and is sprinkled with a smattering of anthropomorphism. So here are many of the usual suspects: tenacious reptiles, adorably fierce pouncing pussycats (in this case servals, a type of African wild cat), daft zebras, bears rubbing themselves on trees set to corny lounge music, and so on. Judging by the release date, the intended audience is families, which is why there’s not a lot of gore or Werner Herzog-style emphasis on the brutality of nature.

A trio of works staged in striking industrial settings blur the roles of dancer and audience – and raise compelling questions about the nature of performance A ballet in an old warehouse. A duet between a woman and a shipping container. A walk through London’s docklands. Choreographers have long been fascinated by the challenges of taking dancers – and audiences – out of their comfort zone of the theatre, and three unconventional performances in London this month did exactly that. In doing so, they raise a range of questions. Is a set the same as a setting? When does the performance start and finish? Is sound the same as the soundtrack? And who is watching whom?

My first memory of the outside world was watching my parents as they heard an announcement on the radio that Joseph Stalin was dead. The news was greeted not with relish but with awe and apprehension. The Soviet dictator was a colossal figure in the mid-20th century, even in the west. His death on 5 March 1953was a reference point not just for the Soviet people but for the wider world. Now it is history.
