Cannes Festival; The Great Gatsby premiere; Jay Bulger on Beware of Mr Baker; Neil Brand on spy theme music
Francine Stock on the latest from the Cannes Film Festival, including The Great Gatsby premiere with critics Catherine Bray and Jonathan Romney. Baz Luhrmann's latest spectacular has attracted mixed reviews in the US where it's just been released - so how did it go down with the Cannes crowd?
Beware of Mr Baker is an usually revealing music documentary on the life and career of the tempestuous Cream drummer Ginger Baker. The director Jay Bulger describes the lies he had to tell to get Ginger to talk to him and why the drummer broke his nose with a walking stick.
And the composer Neil Brand guides us through spy films from The 39 Steps to the Ipcress Files and JFK and explains how their scores give a clue to the secrets of their plots.
Producer: Elaine Lester.
