Thriller writer David Baldacci; director Michael Winterbottom; Saloua Raouda Choucair

With Mark Lawson,

David Baldacci is one of the best-known writers of crime thrillers: his books are regularly bestsellers, and have been translated into more than 45 languages. A former Washington Attorney, Baldacci finds inspiration in stories shared with him by FBI agents. He reflects on the explosions which left three people dead at the end of the Boston marathon.

Tate Modern displays the first major UK exhibition of the Lebanese artist Saloua Raouda Choucair. Born in 1916, Choucair studied under Fernand Leger in 1940s Paris and became a pioneer of abstract art in the Middle East. The retrospective charts five decades of her work, reflecting her fascination with mathematics, science and Islamic art. Shahidha Bari reviews.

Director Michael Winterbottom talks about The Look of Love, his biopic of Soho entrepreneur Paul Raymond. Steve Coogan portrays the owner of the strip club Raymond's Revue Bar, and the soft porn magazine Men Only.
