Extant is a new sci-fi series produced by Stephen Spielberg and starring Halle Berry as an astronaut. It's being broadcast on television in the US, but in Britain it's being streamed on demand. Boyd Hilton of Heat Magazine reviews and considers the burgeoning ways of small-screen viewing.

Tomorrow the Art Fund both announces the winner of Museum of the Year and holds their inaugural museums summit. To discuss the value of museums in today's social and economic climate, Front Row brought directors from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, Detroit Institute of Arts, and Palestinian Museum, together with the director of the Art Fund.

Influential American architect Louis Khan's designs can be seen in Yale University and the Indian Institute of Management in Ahmedabad. Now an exhibition of his models, drawings and photographs are being exhibited in the Design Museum and architect Amanda Levete reviews.

Plus it's been 50 years since The Beatles film A Hard Day's Night was released. David Hepworth revisits the film and tells John whether it works today and how its influence can still be seen.
