SOAP BOX DEBATE: ARTISTS SHOULD ELECT THEIR OWN PARLIAMENT
David Farr, artistic director of the Lyric Hammersmith, and National Theatre associate director Tom Morris propose the motion; Richard Noble, lecturer in Fine Art at Goldsmith’s College, and playwright and satirist Alistair Beaton oppose. Journalist Patrick Marmion chairs. Recorded at the Young Vic. Sound quality: variable.
