Janice Forsyth with all the film news and interviews you'll need for the weekend.

  • On today's show...

    Director Richard Jobson talks about his latest film NEW TOWN KILLERS – a visceral action thriller set on the streets of Edinburgh, in which a duo of menacing bankers prey on people far less fortunate than themselves.

    Leading cinematographer, and new patron of the Edinburgh International Film Festival, Seamus McGarvey joins Janice to talk about working with Oliver Stone, Stephen Frears and Bobby Carlyle.

    Football analyst and film aficionado Pat Nevin reviews Ken Loach's LOOKING FOR ERIC - in which footballing legend Eric Cantona turns counsellor to a postman whose life has broken down.

    There's news of a new film industry hub in Glasgow where casting, shooting, editing and security all cohabit under the one roof.

    PLUS we explore films which show how the folk of Glasgow have worked and played on the banks of the River Clyde as a new exhibition opens at The Lighthouse in Glasgow.

    And Richard Holloway - guest director of this year's Edinburgh International Book Festival - reveals the highlights of this year's programme.
