Mark Kermode's Fifty Years of Film

Mark Kermode turns 50 this summer. To celebrate this event, 5 live tells the story of Mark's lifetime in film.

The movies, along with the directors, actors and actresses that Mark has interviewed, shed light on the mood and sensibility of the times that Mark has lived through and been shaped by. We also track his rise in broadcasting to become as one of the most respected movie critics and journalists working today.

Across this hour friends and colleagues such as Jason Isaacs, Danny Baker, Mark Radcliffe, Lauren Laverne and Simon Mayo share their insights and anecdotes. Plus interviews, news archive, movie clips and music capture the times and memories surrounding some of his favourite films.
