Che lives!

Antonio Banderas presents Che lives! on Radio 2. It’s as bad as it sounds. “Free thinkers were drawn to Cuba…”. etc. Melancholic music as Guevara contemplates his death.

Contributors including Sir Alan Parker, Sir Tim Rice, Steven Soderbergh, Benicio del Toro and Ricky Gervais discuss why, in the 40 years since his death, Che has represented different things to different people.

Galloway appears, as might be expected. The BBC also have an accompanying set of readers’ pictures.
