Big Business, Art and the Middle East, Nebraska
Acclaimed children's author Meg Rosoff joins Samira Ahmed to discuss one of the most eagerly awaited films of the year - Alexander Payne's Nebraska. It's a new twist on the American road movie which focuses on the relationship between a son and his elderly father and features a performance by Bruce Dern that won him the best actor's prize at Cannes this year.
Samira will also be discussing art and the Middle East with the British Museum's Venetia Porter, the critic Godfrey Barker, and Saudi Arabia's best known artist, Abdulnasser Gharem.
And has "business become a dirty word?" Stefan Stern of the Cass Business School and Linda Yueh, the Chief Business correspondent for BBC News, look at whether business has separated itself from society and lost the confidence of its customers.
Producer: Zahid Warley.
