Tonight the arts show interviews one of the top TV writers around: Sally Wainwright.

Wainwright is behind some of the biggest dramas made for British television. Her work includes series like Happy Valley, Last Tango in Halifax and At Home with the Braithwaites. She talks to Melvyn Bragg about her work, alongside fellow actors and writers such as Anne Reid and Russell T. Davies.

One of Wainwright’s other programmes is about the Brontë Sisters, and one of the things discusses is a similarity between Wainwright’s early life sand those of the sisters.

The South Bank Show is on Sky Arts at 20.00.
