Kirsty Lang talks to actor Stephen Mangan about his new comedy, Episodes, which satirises the American TV industry, and he also explains why appearing on Celebrity Mastermind was the single most terrifying thing he ever did.

To mark the bicentenary of the birth of Franz Liszt, pianists Barry Douglas - who plays the Second Piano Concerto with the London Symphony Orchestra this week - and Leslie Howard, president of the British Liszt society (for 21 years) and the only person to have recorded all Liszt's complete solo piano works - consider the unique demands made by the piano-writing of this quintessential Romantic performer and composer.

Lucien Pisarro's Eragny Press is the subject of an exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford; the curator John Whiteley discusses Pisarro's desire to foster links between artists in France and England.
