Listen in pop-out player

With Mark Lawson.

As Graham Norton prepares for the return of his TV show, he discusses whether the chat show has become sanitized, and also considers if it's right to address rumours which sometimes surround high-profile guests.

Beasts Of The Southern Wild is an incantatory, award-winning evocation of a small community precariously positioned near the waterline in a Louisiana bayou. Seen through the eyes of a six year old waif, Benh Zeitlin's magical realist drama follows events as the storms arrive and wash away the ramshackle homes in a tide of mud. Diane Roberts delivers her verdict.

Joy Division were one of the most influential bands of the modern era, inspiring books and a feature film, Control. Their bassist Peter Hook has now written his version of the band's story, and he reflects on their troubled career, including the illness and eventual suicide of singer Ian Curtis.

Producer Stephen Hughes.
