He was a pioneer of the combative interview – and he will be remembered as the man who helped topple Thatcher Brian Walden was as pioneering and influential a figure in political broadcasting as David Attenborough in natural history television. That Walden was less treasured by and familiar to the general public is due to there being less popular interest in Westminster than wildlife. His profile was also further lowered by the decision, very unusual among big TV beasts, to voluntarily walk away from his ITV political talk show Weekend World, in 1986, aged just 54.

Lazarus: the Malawian busker overturning prejudice about albinism 13 May 6:56am Lazarus: the Malawian busker overturning prejudice about albinism
Madonna called him ‘a powerful voice of a new generation’ – but musician Lazarus Chigwandali is still coming to terms with hearing himself on record for the first time On a Sunday last summer, in a small church in Malawi, the congregation listened to a sermon about how all men are equal. A quiet man in jeans and white shirt rose to play a song. He began timidly, sitting at the front of the hall, head bowed over his guitar. But then, a minute into his performance, he stood and began to dance, knees buckling, foot tapping, voice rising, leading the congregation in a grand, euphoric chorus. When music producer Johan Hugo posted footage of the song to his Instagram account, he wrote: “A few golden times in life something blows you away in such an amazing way you just cry and laugh and shake your head. One of the coolest and most emotional moments of my life.”

Ruby Tandoh: how I was turned into a human cheese 13 May 5:00am Ruby Tandoh: how I was turned into a human cheese
Bacteria from my face have been used to make a wheel of stilton. It’s not gross, it’s art – and it is about to go on display at the V&A’s new food exhibition I am about to be made into a cheese. The designer and engineer Helene Steiner is serene in her lab coat, brandishing a cotton swab and sweetly asking if I would consider letting her probe between my toes for a bacterial culture that will turn fresh milk into a wheel of stilton. She has already shown me the centrifuge, the deep freezer, the little petri dish where she will deposit my bacterial sample and the incubator in which the microbes will grow overnight. It is an unlikely setting for a laboratory or a cheese dairy – a converted shipping container tucked away behind Shepherd’s Bush market in west London. But then there is nothing normal about spending a chilly spring day having your germs harvested for cheese. “I want to be a nice cheese. Please not my feet,” I plead with her. “How about my face instead?” Selfmade started as a research project combining biotechnology, engineering and art. The brainchild of the synthetic biologist Christina Agapakis and the artist Sissel Tolaas, in conjunction with the University of Edinburgh and Stanford University, these cheeses aren’t beautiful, or even edible; they’re grown from the bits of us we would usually scrub away. While one of the cheesemakers working on the original Selfmade experiments said she would happily sample them, and they may well be safe to eat, they are not offered for consumption. And yet, as anyone who has ever walked past a supermarket cheese counter will have smelled, the bacteria present on human skin, from noses and ears to feet, have much in common with those in the cheese we eat.

Goodbye Veep: the nastiest, sweariest, funniest show on TV is over 13 May 2:00am Goodbye Veep: the nastiest, sweariest, funniest show on TV is over
Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ political antiheroine has shared her last insult, leaving and behind an audaciously meanspirited comedy that will stand the test of time In politics, the saying goes that everyone worries Washington is as cutthroat as House of Cards, and wants to believe it’s as nobly run as The West Wing. And yet the closest to the truth of the situation, to the idiocy and narcissism and vitriol fueling the US government, is Veep. That Armando Iannucci’s blistering satire of the executive branch has persisted through two diametrically opposed real-life presidencies testifies to the universality of its viewpoint. Proper nouns change, administrations give way to new administrations, but malice and incompetence are forever. The series will come to a conclusion after seven years this Sunday, and in an amusingly Seinfeldian fashion: Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s hapless presidential contender Selina Meyer made a deal with the devil, accepting under-the-table assistance from a meddlesome China with the election, and now faces some rather troubling treason charges.
