Garrison Keillor, Submarine and Enhanced E-Books

With Mark Lawson.

Garrison Keillor, the creator of Lake Wobegon, reads from his collection of love poetry. As a 16-year-old he memorised Shakespeare sonnets and this has inspired him to write a collection called 77 Love Sonnets.

Richard Ayoade made his name acting in the Channel 4 comedy The IT Crowd. He makes his feature film directing debut with Submarine, a comedy about the desires of a 15-year-old boy, with a cast including Sally Hawkins and Paddy Considine. Mark Eccleston reviews.

With some publishing houses hailing 2011 as 'the year of the e-book' and others claiming record profits of their sales, Front Row talks to people on both sides of the industry about the new generation of enhanced e-books and apps to discover whether this is the future of e-books, or merely a niche market.

Producer Ella-mai Robey.
