Romola Garai, David Schwimmer's film Trust

With Mark Lawson.

AN Wilson reviews a pair of exhibitions focused on religious works of art: Devotion by Design: Italian Altarpieces Before 1500 is at the National Gallery and Treasures of Heaven: Saints, Relics and Devotion in Medieval Europe is at the British Museum.

Mark talks to Romola Garai, whose film and TV work has included adaptations of The Crimson Petal and the White, Emma, Atonement, Vanity Fair and I Capture the Castle. She discusses acting on stage at the Royal Court in a play about sex and on TV in '50s newsroom drama The Hour.

David Schwimmer's film Trust follows the repercussions of an online stalker targeting a teenage girl. Clive Owen and Catherine Keener play the parents. Matt Thorne reviews.

More than 30 years after its heyday, the Rubik's cube is still popping up in current culture - in films, plays, music videos and art. Mark talks to Canadian artist, Josh Chalom, who's re-creating the entire Sistine Chapel ceiling using Rubik's cubes, and considers some of the cube's other contemporary cameo appearances.

Producer Rebecca Nicholson.
