Martin Freeman, star of The Hobbit, talks about acting in sub zero temperatures for his latest role in the television adaptation of cult Coen brothers film Fargo. And from the snow to the stage: he discusses his next project - playing Richard III.

Singer-songwriter Paolo Nutini is a platinum selling artist who's now released his third album. He talks to John about his journey from 'New Shoes' to this darker, more serious work. He reveals the influence of his opera loving Italian grandfather on his career and performs for Front Row in the studio.

Glasgow artist Andy Scott talks about his largest creation yet- two giant horse heads based on the mythical Celtic creatures Kelpies. The sculptures, which are in Falkirk's new Helix park, are being unveiled and illuminated as part of an inaugural festival dedicated to conservationist John Muir.

The latest film from cult Swedish director Lukas Moodysson is a coming-of-age drama about three young girls in Stockholm in 1982. Klara, Bobo and Hedwig are ignored by their parents and seen as misfits by everyone else - so they decide to form a punk band.

Presenter: John Wilson
Producer: Nicola Holloway.
