Colin Paterson is joined by Nigel Floyd and Boyd Hilton to review the week's films.

With Burke And Hare one of the big movies out this week Colin speaks to its director, John Landis, the man also behind the video for Michael Jackson's Thriller, and asks how he got involved in a movie about grave robbers in Edinburgh during the 1820s. Landis talks also about his love of the UK, and The Two Ronnies - Ronnie Corbett appears in the film.

Guests also include Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo, who are starring in a new comedy The Kids Are All Right. The film - about two children conceived by artificial insemination who decide to bring their birth father into their lives - has generated some Oscar buzz, but Julianne reveals it almost didn't get funding. She also explains how she recruited Annette Bening by email, and talks about getting intimate with her good friend, Mark Ruffalo.

And Colin is joined by Sabrina Broadbent, the director of schools support for Filmclub, a movie education programme for schools all over the UK, which gives kids access to DVDs, screenings and other events. The award winning director of Monsters Gareth Edwards also joins in, along with Nathan Rimmer and Lewis Rogers, two young ambassadors for Filmclub.
