From the Archive: Bonnie Greer on Do The Right Thing

Back in late 2019, we hosted a series of talks and debates exploring cinema relationship to the modern city and our experience of urban life. As part of this season, journalist and playwright Bonnie Greer introduced Spike Lee's ground-breaking 80s film Do The Right Thing - on the hottest day of the year in a neighbourhood in Brooklyn, hate and bigotry smoulders and builds until it explodes into violence. In this archive episode, Ben Eshmade talks to Bonnie Greer about the impact of this film.


From the Archive sees us dig into our extensive contemporary and classical music and cinema podcast archive as we rediscover interviews and discussions with artists, with our long-standing producer and presenter, Ben Eshmade.
