Arctic Monkeys' Alex on latest release, nerves and laundry

They performed at the opening ceremony for the London Olympics, they've headlined Glastonbury and had five successful studio albums. The Arctic Monkeys' journey from Sheffield to global stardom has been apparently unstoppable.

Newsnight's Stephen Smith - a man who's never been accused of looking good on the dance-floor - has been to talk to the band's front man Alex Turner about their latest release, the most-watched gig of their lives, and laundry.
