Inside Culture with Mary Beard – 4 February 2021 – 4/2/2021 – Thursday – BBC Two

Audiences and Spectacle
Series 2 Episode 3 of 6

Audiences are preoccupying Mary Beard this week – do they matter and what is their role?

Much of lockdown has been spent lamenting the loss of attending live performance across sport, music, theatre and more. Mary talks to sports stars about how the loss of the crowd affects their performance. She attends her first Twitter listening party – a new way for musicians to reach their audience – and talks to Rev Richard Coles, a former musician with 1980s band The Communards, as well as Tim Burgess of The Charlatans, who came up with the idea.

Mary has some fun discussing the changing role of the spectator across history with Kwame Kwei-Armah, Kiri Pritchard-McLean and Dr Kirsty Sedgman, and there’s an exclusive performance from Glasgow’s Barrowlands – famous for its legendary audiences.
