Ken Loach; Halloween re-release; Persistence of Vision

As British director Clio Barnard enjoys warm reviews of her film The Selfish Giant, about two young boys who collect scrap metal, she describes casting her two lead teenage performances. And Francine Stock talks to Ken Loach, an acknowledged influence on Barnard, about how to get the best performances from young people.

Composer Neil Brand is back at the piano, exploring the world of vampires from Nosferatu to Dracula and Buffy and explains why he thinks the blood sucker is actually just looking for love.
Scott Jordan Harris discusses why he thinks Halloween directed by John Carpenter is well worth a second look as it's released on Blu Ray 35 years on.

And documentary maker Kevin Schreck describes his new film Persistence of Vision about the best animation film never made - the 30 year odyssey by pioneering artist Richard Williams.
