Rijksmuseum reopens; Spring Breakers

With John Wilson.

John travels to Amsterdam to visit the Rijksmuseum, re-opening after a decade of renovations. The 19th century building - home to Rembrandt's masterpiece The Nightwatch - not only has a new Asian Pavilion and restored galleries, but also the display of its collection has been transformed: visitors can now see the 8,000 exhibits chronologically, following the story of 800 years of Dutch art and history.

Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical) and Selena Gomez (Wizards Of Waverley Place) are set to shed their clean-cut tween appeal as they star in the film Spring Breakers, alongside James Franco. Four college girls experience the darker side of hedonism after robbing a bank to fund their vacation. Critic Leslie Felperin reviews.

The lead singer of Wire, Colin Newman, discusses the influence of his post-punk band on groups like Blur, Franz Ferdinand and REM, and why they are resurrecting old ideas for their new album Change Becomes Us
