BBC Four Sponsorship 'Waxes Lyrical'

A broadcast media partnership with The Institute of Art and Ideas and the BBC for the world's largest philosophy and music festival held annually in Hay-on-Wye, HowTheLightGetsIn has been announced.
Richard Klein, Controller, BBC Four, said the partnership enables festival-goers to sample some exclusive screenings of forthcoming philosophical programming on offer from BBC Four, with added insight from invited speakers and consultants from the programmes.
Invited speakers include Controller of BBC Four, Richard Klein, who will be introducing a documentary called Justice: a Citizen's Guide To The 21st Century; John Mullan, director of In Their Own Words: Great Thinkers, will host a question and answer session around two premieres of the series; James Rogan director of Storyville's Amnesty documentary will host a debate; and Jonty Claypole, BBC Four Executive Producer, will present an illustrated talk of great philosophers through the BBC Archive.
Running to 6 June, this prestigious philosophy and music festival takes place in Hay-on-Wye, with over 200 events on offer, featuring some of the top musicians, academics and public figures from the philosophy and music world. The BBC is hosting sessions on Sunday 29 May and on the documentary celebration day, Thursday 2 May.
Richard Klein commented: "Whether it's the exploration of Justice in our society, or a trawl through the BBC's archives with the help of the Open University to find the voices of great philosophers, BBC Four is dedicated to in-depth coverage of a wide range of philosophy subjects.
"The channel seeks to explore the great thinkers, debates and issues that affect us today through programming with purpose and proposition.
"We're delighted to partner with HowTheLightGetsIn Philosophy and Music Festival for the first time as we feel that we share very similar ambitions for intelligent, witty and in-depth discussion about a subject we both feel passionately about," he said.
