Brenda Blethyn in new film London River

Duration:
30 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 05 July 2010

Brenda Blethyn stars in the film London River. In the wake of the 7/7 London bombings, two parents from very different religious backgrounds search for their missing children. Adrian Wootton reviews

One-on-One theatre pairs a single audience member with a solo actor. This week London's BAC launches a festival of One-on-One performances and the Barbican's Bite Festival mounts the latest work by the oddly named You Me Bum Bum Train, where over 200 actors concentrate on an audience of one. Kirsty investigates.

On her new CD Tapestry Unravelled, singer Christine Tobin has recorded every song from Carole King's classic 1971 album Tapestry, including You've Got a Friend and It's Too Late. Christine reveals why she's taken on this much-loved disc, and she and her guitarist perform in the Front Row studio.

As the British Film Insitute launches a nationwide hunt for 75 of its most wanted lost films, film historian Matthew Sweet considers the significance of the missing canisters on the film library shelves.

Producer Nicki Paxman.
