Warwick Davis, who has appeared in Willow, Return of the Jedi and the Harry Potter films, talks to John Wilson about the pressures of being one of world's leading short actors.

The verdict on Boogie Woogie, a comedy set in London's contemporary art scene with an ensemble cast featuring Gillian Anderson, Heather Graham, Christopher Lee and Joanna Lumley.

Will Anderson, series producer of Welcome to Lagos, a three part observational TV documentary, discusses how he attempted to capture life in the world's fastest growing megacity.

As increasing numbers of stand-up comedians are able to sell out arena-sized venues, Stephen Armstrong tries to explain the phenomenon and asks if comedy finally is the new rock and roll?

Produced by Anne-Marie Bullock.
