Wilko Johnson and Roger Daltrey; Barkhad Abdi; Salamander
With John Wilson.
Wilko Johnson and Roger Daltrey of The Who have teamed up for a new project. Since he was diagnosed with terminal cancer last year, Wilko has been collaborating with Daltrey on an album, Going Back Home. They talk about their shared musical interests and Roger explains why Wilko reminds him of a young Pete Townsend.
John talks to first time actor and former limo driver Barkhad Abdi, whose extraordinary performance as a Somali pirate in the film Captain Phillips opposite Tom Hanks has earned him Oscar, Golden Globe and Bafta nominations.
Salamander is the latest Euro-thriller to arrive on British TV - this time from Belgium, and in Flemish. Disguised as builders, a gang rob a top Belgian bank - but the burglars only target a small handful of the vaults, the ones belonging to the country's industrial, financial, judicial and political elite. These stolen safe-deposit boxes contain secrets that could bring down the nation. Crime writer Dreda Say Mitchell reviews.
Hans Haacke and David Shrigley will be the next two artists to display their work on Trafalgar Square's fourth plinth. Haacke's sculpture of a horse's skeleton will go up in 2015, followed by Shrigley's giant thumbs up in 2016. Both artists discuss developing an idea for one of London's busiest civic spaces and explain why humour is important in public art.
Producer: Olivia Skinner.
Barkhad Abdi, who plays Muse, the leader of a band of Somali pirates in the film Captain Phillips, has been nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in the film which is in cinemas on Monday 10 February, certificate 12A.
