Antonio Pappano; playwright Anne Washburn; Banksy retrospective
With Matthew d'Ancona
Antonio Pappano, music director of the Royal Opera House, talks about Puccini's first great operatic success, Manon Lescaut.
We review Devil's Knot, the latest film from Atom Egoyan. Based on a true story about the savage murders of three boys in Arkansas in 1993, the film stars Colin Firth as Ron Lax, the case's private investigator.
Writer Anne Washburn talks about her play Mr Burns, where The Simpsons provide the narrative in a post-apocalyptic world, and pop songs assume a similarly revered cultural position.
Art critic Adrian Searle discusses a large retrospective of Banksy's work including paintings, prints and sculptures. Street art is not included in the exhibition, which has been curated without the involvement of the mysterious artist.
Producer Claire Bartleet.
