Brad Pitt's latest reviewed, Gareth Malone, Greg Davies

Duration:
30 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 18 September 2012

With Mark Lawson.

Gareth Malone first found fame in the TV series The Choir, where he encouraged reluctant teenagers to sing. Most recently he led the Military Wives choir, who scored a Christmas number one last year. With a new TV series Sing While You Work about to be broadcast, Gareth Malone reflects on the insights he gained from writing a book about his experiences, and why he will never make a programme in a prison, despite being asked many times.

Brad Pitt's latest film, Killing Them Softly, is a gangster movie about the credit crunch and America's economic woes. Adrian Wootton delivers his verdict.

Comedian Greg Davies reveals why his parents want him to keep making jokes at their expense.

As Radio 4 broadcasts the 10 short stories competing for the £15,000 BBC International Short Story Award, Front Row talks to each of the writers. Tonight South African writer Henrietta Rose-Innes discusses the inspiration for her story Sanctuary, to be broadcast tomorrow afternoon.

Producer Stephen Hughes.
