By Arnold Wesker. A startling new perspective on an age-old story. Shylock's close friend Antonio needs a loan; but 16th-century Venetian law discriminates against Jews, and, for Shylock's own protection, Antonio persuades him to agree on a bond. They laugh as Shylock invents the absurd forfeit of a pound of flesh ... but their mockery of the law could so easily turn to tragedy.

The American artist Robert Rauschenberg died last month at the age of 82. In a rare interview recorded in 1998 he talks to Tim Marlow about his career in which he created some of the icons of post-war
American art. He was close friends with other great figures of modernism, such as the musician John Cage and the painter Willem de Kooning, and he rose to fame in New York in the 1950s. Rauschenberg's collaborators, including Merce Cunningham , explain how he managed to blaze a trail for the contemporary desire to blur the boundaries between different art forms. Producer Tanya Hudson
