Jessica Chastain; Michael Winner remembered

Duration:
30 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 21 January 2013

With Mark Lawson.
Jessica Chastain is nominated for an Oscar for her role in Zero Dark Thirty, Kathryn Bigelow's film about an elite military and intelligence team hunting for Osama Bin Laden. She discusses the demands of her role in a film which has generated controversy about the role of torture in the story.
The death of film-maker Michael Winner was announced today. Barry Norman, who followed Winner's movie career from the 1960s onwards, and Andrew Neil, who first employed him as a restaurant reviewer on The Sunday Times, reflect on the life of a director and writer who readily re-invented himself, and was never afraid to say what he thought.
Adam Ant today releases his first album for 18 years, and David Bowie recently issued his first new track in a decade. Alex Clark, Mark Eccleston and Kate Mossman discuss the authors, film-makers and musicians who leave long gaps between one work and the next.
Producer Nicki Paxman.
