Alex Ross, Richard Eyre, Angela de la Cruz

Mark Lawson speaks with Alex Ross, author of The Rest Is Noise, an award-winning book charting the story of music in the 20th century.

Richard Eyre, Tom Hollander and Lisa Dillon discuss the rules of farce as they prepare to open a production of Feydeau's A Flea in Her Ear at the Old Vic.

Based on a true story, Of Gods And Men explores the last few months in the life of a small community of Christian monks caught in the middle of a conflict between the Algerian government and Islamic fundamentalists.

John Wilson meets Turner Prize shortlisted artist Angela de la Cruz in her studio to discuss the sculptures she makes from twisted, ripped and apparently broken paintings. Sitting in a wheelchair and speaking through an interpretor, Angela talks about the stroke she suffered in 2005 and the effect it had on the work she now makes.
