Catch more about Roald Dahl as we celebrate his centenary.

You can catch more about Roald Dahl and our Matilda The Musical, based on his wonderful tale, through loads of TV and radio coverage over the next few days.   

Playwright Dennis Kelly, chatted to Suzy Klein on Radio 3's drive time show, In Tune, about writing the book for Matilda The Musical. Listen to the interview on In Tune.

Tim Minchin, who wrote the music for the show, played live at BBC's Proms in the Park in Hyde Park on Saturday, joined on stage by two of our wonderful Matildas. You can catch them singing on iPlayer.

You can also see an excerpt from the show live on The One Show on Monday 12 September and a real insight into how we made the show in Australia, via Matilda and Me, a documentary following Tim and the Australian production, which is screened on Sky Arts at 9pm on Tuesday 13 September.

On 13 September schools around the world will be tuning into the annual Puffin Virtually Live: Roald Dahl Day webcast, broadcast this year from the stage of The Cambridge Theatre. Over 5,000 schools worldwide are expected to tune in to watch an exclusive performance by Miss Trunchbull and the cast. Watch the show at  www.puffinvirtuallylive.co.uk on Tuesday at 2pm or catch up after OnDemand.

Finally, Channel 4's tribute last weekend, Roald Dahl's Most Marvellous Book, saw Matilda voted the winner. Go that girl.
