Ah the glamour. After months of sending Mike to waste sites, farmers fields and deserted streets, he gets to hang out at a film festival on this week's show. We're in Turin for the city's annual Environmental Film Festival, and we've taken along our own short animated film to show off to the assembled producers and directors.

At the festival, Mike meets up with Ric O'Barry, star of the Oscar winning documentary The Cove, to debate the power of environmental films. We also consider how Hollywood uses kids movies to get across it's eco-message.

Plus we meet up with endurance swimmer Lewis Gordon Pugh following his successful swim in a glacial lake on Mount Everest. He gives a few tips on how to swim at 5,300 meters above sea level - slowly, as if swimming with your mother is the key apparently.

As ever, tune in and then let us know what you think. There's a host of extra material for you this week - watch our short movie, the link's below. Don't forget our Flickr album, and remember you can always join the team on our Facebook page.
