Andrew Graham-Dixon presents The Culture Show from Glasgow

Andrew Graham-Dixon presents the latest edition of The Culture Show from Glasgow and features a profile of legendary artist and writer Alasdair Gray on the publication of his autopictography, A Life In Pictures.

The programme also previews two exhibitions of his work at the National Gallery of Modern Art and the Talbot Rice Gallery in Edinburgh. Gray has been cited as a major influence on writers, artists and musicians, from Iain Banks and Jonathan Coe to Belle And Sebastian. Anthony Burgess has called him "the most important Scottish writer since Walter Scott".

Miranda Sawyer meets British rap sensation Tinie Tempah, midway through his current tour of the UK, to discuss his latest album, Disc-ography. Having been a regular on the underground scene for several years, Tinie Tempah was catapulted into the mainstream this year when his first single, Pass Out, took the No. 1 spot and became one of the best-selling hits of the year. His eclectic mix of grime, pop, house, dubstep and rap has brought high-profile admirers with recent collaborators including Diddy and Damon Albarn.

The Culture Show checks out one of the most talked-about movies this year, The Kids Are All Right, which is screening at the London Film Festival next week prior to its UK release. The film stars Annette Bening and Julianne Moore as a married couple with two children conceived through artificial insemination. Now teenagers, the children decide to seek out their biological fathers.

This week's show also features new play Tribes by Nina Raines, an unconventional drama about the limits of communication for 18-year-old Billy, a deaf boy growing up in a hearing family. One of the Culture Show's very own directors, who grew up in similar circumstances, gives his verdict on the play.

Andrew Graham-Dixon visits Chichester Cathedral to see the magnificent Tudor Panel paintings by Lambert Barnard and to find out how the campaign to restore them is progressing.

And, finally, Damien Hirst raids the BBC archives to find his favourite moments from artists on TV including Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol and Michel Duchamp.

Russell Howard returns with his lively, topical and entertaining show
Russell Howard returns with his lively, topical and entertaining show

Russell Howard is back for a third series of Russell Howard's Good News on BBC Three. The previous series was the channel's most successful entertainment show – pulling in over three million viewers a week – and was the most-requested BBC Three programme on BBC iPlayer while on air.

As ever, the show is lively, topical and entertaining – with Russell giving his take on some of the key stories of the week as well as highlighting some of the more overlooked items that have caught his eye during his forensic trawl through newspapers, websites, TV and radio shows. Last series saw Russell cover the Icelandic volcano that brought Europe's air travel to a halt and the highs and lows of the most closely fought General Election campaign in recent memory... as well as popstar Craig David becoming an ever-so-unlikely spokesman for a good cause

Russell Howard's Good News is filmed live in front of a studio audience. Viewers at home are able to shape the show's agenda by submitting news stories online at or via Twitter @bbcgoodnews. The series runs for eight weeks, finishing off with a Christmas-themed end-of-year special.
