Word of mouth is a powerful force in the arts - but how will it work in the digital future? Continuing Front Row's digital series, Pulitzer prize-winning author Jennifer Egan and Annette Mees of Coney, creator of immersive theatre and interactive adventures, discuss whether we will trust recommendations from virtual friends, and Alex Woodford, head of AKA's digital marketing department, explains how he nurtures positive word of mouth online.

In the film Tracker, Ray Winstone is a guerrilla fighter from the South African Boer war sent on a manhunt through the landscape of New Zealand, on the trail of a Maori seaman accused of murder. Antonia Quirke reviews.

The film Monsters is the directorial debut of Gareth Edwards, an Emmy-nominated visual effects editor. He reveals how he made his low budget "love story with monsters attached", just released on DVD. The film caught the eye of Hollywood and now he has the chance to make a new big budget Godzilla.

Following the news of the death of the photojournalist and documentary-maker Tim Hetherington whilst under fire in Libya, Front Row pays tribute to him.
