With Mark Lawson.

Anonymous, directed by Roland Emmerich, claims Shakespeare didn't write any plays or sonnets: the real author was the Earl of Oxford - played by Rhys Ifans - who wrote them all in secret. Ryan Gilbey reviews.

Stephan Solzhenitsyn, son of the Nobel Prize-winning writer Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, reflects on his father's life and legacy, as a new collection of his short stories is published in English for the first time.

Oscar-nominated actress Viola Davis talks to Mark about her new film The Help. She reflects on the differences between acting in Hollywood and on stage, and the roles she is offered as an African-American actress.

Producer Georgia Mann.
