Listen in pop-out player

Set at the heart of the 80's music scene, Worried About The Boy is a TV biopic which tells the story of a young Boy George, dreaming of living a life filled with originality and passion, and of becoming a star. Kirsty Lang and music critic Alexis Petridis review the new drama, and assess the way it portrays an iconic figure and the cultural era he epitomised.

Kirsty Young, this year's chair of judges for the Art Fund Prize, announces the shortlist for the best museum or gallery in the UK, the winner of which will receive £100,000.

Israeli film-maker Samuel Maoz served as a gunner in a tank in the first Lebanon War of 1982, and he has recreated the tension and horror of that experience in his new film Lebanon. Maoz discusses the film, which won the Golden Lion Award at the 2009 Venice Film Festival, and why he set it almost entirely in the claustrophobic interior of a tank in hostile territory.

With the Ivor Novello awards recognising video game music with the creation of a new award, we talk to Ivor and Bafta nominated composers Joris De Man and James Hannigan about composing soundtracks for video games.
