BSkyB chief executive Jeremy Darroch gives Steve Hewlett a rare interview on his strategy for Sky, including investment in programmes and importance of Premiership football rights - and addresses some of the stories surrounding Sky including its relationship with Rupert Murdoch and rivalry with the BBC. For further context, there was a discussion of BSkyB's recent strong financial report in last week's programme.

Film director Michael Apted has been closely connected to the "Up" series on ITV since working on World in Action's "7 Up" in 1964. From Los Angeles, he tells Steve and the Guardian media writer Maggie Brown what he has learnt in the making of "56 Up" which is being shown next Monday - and why it would be much harder to attempt this kind of documentary series today.

And Maggie Brown and Steve discuss what politicians might expect from the evidence of Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson at the Leveson Inquiry tomorrow and on Friday.

The producer is Simon Tillotson.
