If you fancy a change of gear or need your batteries charging The Film Programme is the place for you. Francine Stock talks to Nicholas Winding Refn about his new film, Drive, starring Ryan Gosling as a stuntman who drives getaway cars in his spare time. He falls for the wife of a criminal played by Carey Mulligan and soon falls foul of the local gangsters. Its a turbo-charged ride and shares the fascination with violence evident in Refn's earlier work.
Drive's 21st century sheen is more than matched by the vision of Humphrey Jennings...the man Lindsay Anderson described as the only poet of British cinema. A collection of films from the beginning of his career is being released on DVD for the first time this month and Francine Stock is joined by Jennings' biographer, Kevin Jackson, to assess them and their place in his achievement.
There's also an interview with Andrew Rossi who went undercover to produce Page One, a documentary about the New York Times and Neil Brand is on hand to diagnose some of your least favourite film scores -- the ones you feel miss the mark by a million miles.

Producer: Zahid Warley.
