Buffy Creator Joss Whedon Does Shakespeare

Joss Whedon explains why he went home to shoot Much Ado About Nothing rather than spending a romantic week in Venice with his wife. Author and graphic novelist Neil Gaiman admits that writing a book about Duran Duran taught him a lesson in integrity. Film composer Hans Zimmer had to overcome his fear of following in his hero John William's footsteps to write the score for new Superman movie Man of Steel. Crime writer Carl Hiaasen talks about Driggs - the very badly behaved monkey he's created - and scamming Florida tourists with dead sailfish. Film-maker Tina Gharavi relives narrowly escaping arrest when she shot her film, I am Nasrine, illegally in Iran.

Anne McElvoy talks to Neil Gaiman, prolific award-winning author of novels for adults and children alike and writer for radio and television - think Neverwhere and Dr Who. His new novel, The Ocean At The End Of The Lane, has more than a hint of autobiography. It's a tale for adults inspired by an event in his own childhood.
