Topping the bill in this week's Film Programme are Kevin Macdonald and Brendan Gleeson. Macdonald discusses his extraordinary documentary, Life in a Day, which he quarried from more than eighty thousand clips submitted via the internet and Gleeson offers insights into Gerry Boyle, the quirky Connemara cop he plays in John McDonagh's The Guard. Francine Stock also talks to the critic, Jane Graham, about Edinburgh's International Film Festival which opened this week and invites the film historian Pasquale Iannone to reflect on Paolo Sorrentino, one of Italy's modern masters.

Producer: Zahid Warley.
