Four-time BAFTA-winning comic Harry Hill discusses his hit Saturday night show TV Burp. Hill reveals how his trademark big-collar and glasses costume came about and why TV Burp has put him off watching TV.

A bookseller has discovered a book belonging to the late Harold Pinter which the playwright was so moved by that he 'liberated' it from a library in 1950. Ed Maggs, who found the book while cataloguing Pinter's collection of more than 2,000 books, reveals the title in question and Adrian Whittle of Southwark Council tots up the late return fee.

Actor Alexander Hanson discusses his performance in the new production of A Little Night Music which opens on Broadway and stars Catherine Zeta-Jones and Angela Lansbury.
