With John Wilson.

Matt Damon's new film, Promised Land, based on a story by Dave Eggers, focuses on fracking - extracting gas by fracturing rock layers. Damon plays Steve Butler, an executive sent to a rural town to gain drilling rights, who comes into conflict with an environmental campaigner. The film reunites Damon with Good Will Hunting director Gus Van Sant. Natalie Haynes reviews.

Radio 3 and Proms Controller Roger Wright reveals highlights of this summer's BBC Proms season - including Marin Alsop, the first woman to conduct The Last Night Of The Proms.

Singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves has taken US country and western music by storm, topping the country charts with her songs inspired by the darker side of life in small-town America. Guitar in hand, Kacey Musgraves reflects on her inspirations, and how she hopes to confound the expectations of the music industry.

The contenders for this year's Deutsche Börse Prize for photography include two projects in which the photographers have curated images they have found online, rather than photos they have taken themselves. Mishka Henner, who has gathered images from Google Streetview, and duo Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, who borrow images from the war on terror, discuss changing ideas about how photographers can capture the world.

Producer Rebecca Nicholson.
