Hugh Laurie, Attack the Block, Conrad Shawcross

Duration:
30 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 10 May 2011

Not content with being the highest paid television actor in the world, Hugh Laurie has now released his debut album as a musician. Let Them Talk is a disc of New Orleans blues, which he discusses with Mark Lawson.

The new film Attack the Block features a gang of South London hoodies confronting invading aliens. It's Joe Cornish's directorial debut. Gaylene Gould reviews.

Sculptor Conrad Shawcross gives us a tour of his studio, where he is preparing artworks to go on display alongside the mathematical models in the Science Museum in London.

The Trouble with Love and Sex is a BBC Two documentary using real audio recordings from relationship counselling sessions at Relate, but hiding the identities of the people involved through the use of animation. Chris Dunkley reclines on the couch to discuss the pros and cons of using animated characters to tackle intimate topics.

Producer Andrea Kidd.
