Michael Gambon and Robert Wyatt

Listen in pop-out player

Sir Michael Gambon returns to the stage this week in Krapp's Last Tape by Samuel Beckett. He talks to John Wilson about his memories of Beckett, how he deals with first night nerves and his approach to the Harry Potter films.

Part of the Whitworth Gallery in Manchester is now filled with real trees, chopped down and installed to form an indoor forest. It's the work of artist Olafur Eliasson, best known for his giant sun at the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern. John reports on how the trees reached the gallery.

Musician Robert Wyatt discusses his new album, For The Ghosts Within, which draws on classic jazz tunes, and considers how a serious accident affected his musical career.

Producer: Rebecca Nicholson.
