With Mark Lawson.

Denzel Washington has won an Oscar nomination for his role in the film Flight. He plays an airline pilot who miraculously lands a stricken plane. At first he's hailed as a hero, but then questions start to arise about what actually happened. Denzel Washington reflects on the role, and his long Hollywood career.

Manet: Portraying Life is the first major British exhibition of Edouard Manet's portraits - including 50 paintings as well as pastels and photographs from private and public collections from around the world. Novelist A S Byatt reviews.

Bryan and Mary Talbot have won the biography category of this year's Costa Book Awards for their graphic memoir Dotter of her Father's Eyes. They discuss working as a husband and wife team and whether talking about work is banned at the dinner table.
