Darren Aronofsky on Noah; Mark Cousins on Children and Film

With Francine Stock.

Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky discusses his controversial blockbuster about Noah, which has been loudly condemned by some religious groups in the United States.

Documentary film-maker Mark Cousins considers the history of kids in film and why he thinks children and cinema are made for each other.

In the year that Film 4 won the Oscar for Best Film with Twelve Years A Slave, the news that its controller Tessa Ross has decided to leave the job stunned the British film industry last week. Director Roger Michell, Charles Gant and Briony Hanson reflect upon her legacy and the impact that her departure will have on the business.

Kristin Scott-Thomas reveals how she got her big break and talks about the film that made her a star.
