Musician Elton John

Elton John discusses his worry that TV propels acts into stardom who aren’t ready and who don’t have enough talent. Plus, Sleepless in Seattle producer Lynda Obst, defines a ‘New Abnormal’ in Hollywood film-making.

Spanish singer Concha Buika discusses flamenco, coplas, soul and jazz, on her album La Noche Mas Larga. And film-maker Sofia Coppola explores shallow celebrity in her new film The Bling Ring. Also, Burlesque dancer Maude Davey considers stripping naked with Down’s syndrome and we hear from the director of new gay Israel-Palestine movie, Out in the Dark.
