Julie Walters interview; architect David Chipperfield

With Mark Lawson.

The varied television career of Julie Walters is being celebrated at the BFI. She discusses her career, including her famous collaborations with Victoria Wood, Alan Bennett, Alan Bleasdale and Willy Russell.

British architect Sir David Chipperfield CBE is receiving the RIBA Royal Gold Medal for Architecture 2011 tomorrow. He talks to Mark about his approach to architecture, including two major new galleries: the Hepworth, Wakefield, and Turner Contemporary in Margate. He also reveals why he didn't entirely disagree with Prince Charles, when he spoke out against modern architecture in 1985.

Winifred Holtby's partly autobiographical novel South Riding, first published in 1936, focuses on an idealistic headmistress dealing with life, love and small town politics in a 1930s Yorkshire town. It first appeared on the small screen in 1974, starring Dorothy Tutin. Now Andrew Davies has written a new TV adaptation, with a cast including David Morrissey and Penelope Wilton. Tobias Hill reviews.
