Actor and writer Oliver Ford Davies talks about his new book 'Shakespeare’s Fathers and Daughters' with his daughter Miranda Emmerson (1994, English). Emmerson is herself the author of a recent debut novel, 'Miss Treadway and the Field of Stars'. The two will talk about the way in which fathers and daughters have shaped each other in the arts, chaired by Nicolette Jones.

Ford Davies is an Olivier-winning stage actor, screen actor and writer. He has appeared in more than 30 stage productions, and his notable screen performances include as Sio Bibble in Star Wars and Cressen in Game of Thrones.

Emmerson has adapted many modern novels for serialisation on BBC radio and has written highly acclaimed dramas. 'Miss Treadway and the Field of Stars' is her first novel. It is about an American actress who goes missing in 1960s London and her dresser who is determined to find out what happened to her.
