With Matthew Sweet.

Sherlock co-creator and League Of Gentlemen founder Mark Gatiss reveals his favourite screen detectives in the last instalment of his series.

Richard Ayoade of The IT Crowd discusses his dystopian adaptation of Dostoevsky's The Double and reveals the words of advice he got from fellow director David Cronenberg.

Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris discuss the perils of working with mechanical effects, such as a cloud car that floats above Parisian rooftops, in Michel Gondry's fantasy Mood Indigo.

As Guardians Of The Galaxy hits cinemas this weekend, The Film Programme presents a guide to the space opera, a genre that does science fiction on a grand scale with evil emperors, cute robots and talking furry creatures. Naomi Alderman, Adam Smith and Helen McCarthy prepare for lift-off.

Antonia Quirke revisits a beloved childhood favourite, the film adaptation of Swallows And Amazons, to find out if her memory has been playing tricks on her.

Matthew talks to one of the "Keating 12", the dozen or so people who paid money to witness Ronan Keating's movie debut in Goddess, which only took £129 at the British box office.
