High and low culture: Separated at birth?

This riveting Battle of Ideas debate considers whether high culture should be celebrated or viewed with suspicion, or even if it exists. In the past high and low rubbed up together and influenced each other. Is there a possibility today for such a healthy interchange between pop and classical? TV and art-house film? Street dance and ballet? Damien Hirst and Jack Vettriano? Or, is what was once potentially a common and shareable cultural world, now irretrievably shattered? Speakers include: Ivan Hewett, Dr Tiffany Jenkins & Roly Keating. The chair is Dolan Cummings.
