Spike Island, Arne Dahl and Joss Whedon on Much Ado about Nothing

3 hours
First broadcast:
Saturday 15 June 2013

Films Spike Island, and Much Ado about Nothing are up for discussion in Screen 6.

Hot on the heels of Shane Meadows' Made of Stone, a documentary about the reformation of Manchester band The Stone Roses, Spike Island (written by Chris Coghill) is centred round a rising indie band who travel to Spike Island, Cheshire, in May of 1990 to see The Stone Roses. Directed by Mat Whitecross and starring Nico Mirallegro, the guys join Edith to talk about all things Madchester.

Swedish crime novelist Arne Dahl is in the studio to talk about our current obsession with all things Nordic Noir on TV, and his own series that has bee shown on BBC 4 recently.

Joss Whedon chats about Much Ado About Nothing - a modern retelling of Shakespeare's classic comedy about two pairs of lovers with different takes on romance and a way with words. And the new Superman film - is it an good? Plus loads of gorgeous alternative tunes to soundtrack your Saturday.
