Barry Norman on Hollywood Glamour; Mick Jagger's new group SuperHeavy, Commonwealth Institute

Listen in pop-out player

With Kirsty Lang.

Barry Norman explores the glamour of the golden age of Hollywood and the power of the still image, as he reviews an exhibition of vintage film photographs at the National Portrait Gallery.

The former Commonwealth Institute building has been closed for almost a decade. Built in the early 1960s, with a distinctive tent-shaped roof, it now opens its doors to the public again as the venue for performances inspired by the building itself. Kirsty pays a visit with architect Maxwell Hutchinson, and talks to some of those involved in the new show.

The Palestinian writer and theatre director Amir Nizar Zuabi discusses his latest production In the Penal Colony, a dramatic retelling of Kafka's fable of injustice and violence.

Producer Andrea Kidd.
