  • Barneys, Books and Bust-Ups: 50 Years of The Booker Prize, Monday, 21.00, BBC4

    The greatest ever Booker Prize ceremony was undoubtedly the 1983 event, very much the literary equivalent of the Brits 89, thanks to Selina Scott’s notorious appointment as host, asking Angela Cater who she was and Fay Weldon, the chair of the judges, if she’d actually read the books. No doubt we’ll get that here alongside other memorable events from the past half century, illustrating that for all it’s about the love of writing and the need to tell the story, just like in every other branch of the arts, authors are never averse to moaning incessantly if they don’t win.
