Tom Hanks; Alice Munro; Dana Schutz
With Mark Lawson.
Tom Hanks reflects on saying no to film offers, playing real people, and his latest role in Captain Phillips, which depicts the ordeal of Richard Phillips, captain of a cargo ship taken hostage by Somali pirates in 2009. Captain Phillips is directed by Paul Greengrass (United 93, The Bourne Supremacy).
It was announced today that Alice Munro has been awarded the 2013 Nobel Prize for Literature. AS Byatt and Hermione Lee discuss the Canadian author, who writes short stories rather than novels.
And Mark talks to the American artist Dana Schutz, whose colourful and fantastical paintings are on show at The Hepworth gallery in Wakefield.
Producer Timothy Prosser.
The contemporary American painter Dana Schutz is known for her colourful figurative paintings which aim to capture awkward or private moments and which also explore imaginary scenarios. As her first solo show in the UK opens at The Hepworth Wakefield, she talks to Mark Lawson about trying to paint Barak Obama.
