Presented by Mark Lawson.

Mark Lawson and novelist Philip Hensher discuss Anton Chekhov's Ivanov, the opening production of the Donmar Warehouse's year-long residency at the Wyndham's Theatre. This new version by Tom Stoppard stars Kenneth Branagh in the title role with Gina McKee as his doomed wife.

Actress Helen Hunt talks to Mark about directing her first film, Then She Found Me, the story of a New York schoolteacher who has a mid-life crisis, and why Hollywood is biased against women.

David Quantick charts the parallels in the lives and music of Elvis Presley and Cliff Richard, who both have new albums out this week.

Novelist Howard Jacobson discusses The Act of Love, his story of sexual jealousy and betrayal.
