  • What is British music? Aug 10, 2012 - 8:50 pm
  • Elgar, the Beatles and Dizzee Rascal have all had a starring role in London’s Olympic Games, with some astonishing scenes that told the world the story of Britain’s contribution to popular culture.

    But can British music continue to punch above its weight?

    In this special edition of the Arts Podcast, FT pop critic Ludovic Hunter-Tilney is joined in the studio by Laura Battle, an FT classical music critic, Peter Aspden, the newspaper's culture columnist, and Paul Morely, radio and TV presenter and music critic.

    With music by The Beatles, Thomas Ades, Roy Harper and Amy Winehouse.

    Produced by Griselda Murray Brown and John Sunyer
