Conviction: We hear from Betty Anne Waters -the real life inspiration for Hillary Swank's character in this film(just out on DVD) about a working mother who puts herself through law school in an effort to represent her brother; a man who has been wrongfully convicted of murder and has exhausted his chances to appeal his conviction through public defenders.

Scots in Cannes: Cannes is a networking and deal making heaven for movie producers and distributors: deals get made, distribution rights get traded and decision makers throng the streets. Gail Tolley caught with a number of Scots over there to find out how they maximise their opportunities.

Jazz On Film: The Glasgow Jazz Festival 'Jazz on Film Strand': Alison Kerr is a jazz and film journalist in Glasgow, who came up with the idea of staging a festival-within-the-festival because the two art forms' histories are so intertwined.
