Wonder Woman Lynda Carter and director Anthony Page

Lynda Carter, the American actress and former Miss USA most famous for playing Wonder Woman in the long-running television series, is in the UK for two concerts as a solo singer. She talks to Mark Lawson about beauty contests, inventing the Wonder Woman spin and her career as a singer.

In July, Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt announced that the UK Film Council, set up in 2000 to develop and promote the British film industry, was to be axed as part of cost-cutting by his department, the DCMS. Now that the dust is beginning to settle, Venus and Notting Hill director Roger Michell and Adrian Wootton, Chief Executive Officer of Film London, consider the current state of British film and the potential fall-out from the announcement of the UKFC being wound up.

Film and stage director Anthony Page discusses whether the sexual triangle in Noel Coward's play Design for Living still has the power to shock 70 years on and reflects on a career which started at The Royal Court Theatre in the 1950s and has included working with Samuel Beckett and John Osborne.

And this week a London cinema has embarked on a marathon showing of all 121 episodes of the TV series Lost, back-to-back. With the event starting at 10am yesterday, and rounding off at midnight on Thursday, Danny Robbins considers the new trend of 'culture-bingeing'.

Producer Jerome Weatherald.
