My Name Is Khan is a classic Bollywood love story set in America in the aftermath of the 11th September 2001 attacks. It's a joint venture with Fox Studios, starring Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Kahn, and charts the story of an Indian Muslim man who suffers from Aspergers syndrome. After 9/11 he is arrested at Los Angeles airport when his behaviour is mistaken as suspicious. He embarks on an epic journey to see President Obama in a bid to clear his name. Kirsty Lang and critic Sarfraz Manzoor discuss the film.

Kirsty Lang visits artist Michael Landy to check on the progress of his installation, Art Bin. He unveiled the piece - a huge container into which unwanted works of art can be thrown - at the end of January.

Kirsty Lang talks to playwright Bola Agbaje about Off The Endz, her new play exploring the options for three young black Britons who grew up together on a London estate.

The Hacienda nightclub launched the global acid house and 'Madchester' music scenes, started the careers of bands including the Happy Mondays and paved the way for the current club scene. Yet it lost millions. Now one of the owners, Peter Hook, formerly of New Order, is starting a new club in the hope of being as influential on the current music scene. Anne-Marie Bullock reports on whether it'll be so easy this time around.
