Director David Lynch talks to actor Michael Sheen about the music in his films and virtuoso guitarist, Milos Karadaglic describes getting into the zone when playing Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez. We find out who legally owns Banksy’s street art and graffiti and there's a paean of praise to and a plea to save photochemical film from film-maker Tacita Dean. We have Oscar winning sound editor Richard Hymns talking about designing the atmospheric sound for Robert Redford's All Is Lost. Writer Meena Kandaswamy discusses her novel, The Gypsy Goddess, based on the true story of a 1968 massacre of Dalit village labourers.
