Plus a queen of the game of chess; Anya Taylor-Joy in both The Queen's Gambit and the 2020 screen adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma scored by Isobel Waller-Bridge. Aedín also celebrates the star of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Mary Poppins Dick Van Dyke, who at 95 years of age has enjoyed an award-winning career that has spanned seven decades. We'll also take a first listen to the soundtrack of In the Heights, by Lin-Manuel Miranda.
