Angelina Jolie gives a rare interview to the Culture Show. She talks to Mark Kermode about her varied film career and her film Changeling - which some critics say is her best work yet - directed by Clint Eastwood.

Photographer and artist Tom Hunter is among the top artists campaigning to raise 50 million pounds to buy Titian's Diana and Actaeon for the nation. To highlight the supreme beauty of this painting, Tom recreates the masterpiece in a modern-day setting with a surprising cast playing Diana, Actaeon and the scantily clad nymphs. There's a surprise starring role for Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall.

The actor Martin Freeman - a Motown devotee - travels to Detroit to meet Motown's house band, the Funk Brothers. Althought they played on hundreds of hits and were the heart of the Motown sound, they have only recently received recognition.

And Sir Paul McCartney joins Lauren Laverne in the studio in the week his album Electric Arguments is released, a surprising genre-hopping album consisting of thirteen tracks - each one written and recorded in the space of a day.
