The weekend is nigh on upon us and there’s just the weekly Friday traditions to navigate before we can all go streaking in the quad (or whatever you’ve got planned). Chief among these hurdles is the new episode of Studio Audience, the It’s Nice That podcast, but if it is a hurdle it’s one built of wit and insight (!) rather than clattery metal and that. So let’s do this!

This week we kicked off talking about a new set of 119 BBC icons set to be rolled out across various areas and designed to combine and to the organisation’s heritage with multi-use clarity, then we looked at this neat bit of creative thinking by climate change activists (video above) and we purred over the new Studio Frith/Juergen Teller/Will Self food book. Finally we spoke about plans by The Observer newspaper to launch a monthly technology supplement to place it “at the heart of the conversation about technology and science in this country.”
Then we looked quickly at plans to turn 2001 hit film Amelie into a Broadway musical and the strange case of a director who sold the rights but hated doing so. We pondered the idea of giving up ownership of creative work in the modern world.
