Presented by John Wilson.

Craig Cash and Phil Mealey talk to John about their new sitcom, Sunshine, in which they play friends of the lead character, Bing Crosby - a gambling addict played by Steve Coogan.

American artist Richard Serra, best-known for his enormous, emotionally moving steel sculptures, is in Britain preparing for his first solo exhibition in this country since 1992. He tells John how and why he works with steel and explains why he didn't mind when somebody added graffiti to one of his sculptures in France.

The Saatchi Gallery is about to re-open in is new home, the former headquarters of the Duke Of York's Regiment. Rebecca Wilson, Head of Development for Saatchi Online, gives John a sneak preview of both the gallery and its inaugural exhibition, Revolution Continues: New Chinese Art, which brings together work by 30 of China's leading contemporary artists. John also talks to art market expert Sarah Thornton, author of Seven Days In The Art World.
