Joyce Carol Oates; Special effects on screen; The Musketeers
With John Wilson.
Joyce Carol Oates talks about her latest novel, Carthage, in which a teenage girl disappears having last been seen with her sister's ex-fiancé, an injured soldier recently back from Iraq. In a story told from various perspectives we watch what happens to a family destroyed by tragedy, and to a soldier who can't come to terms with what he's seen during combat.
Writer William Burroughs, artist Andy Warhol and film-maker David Lynch are the subjects of a trio of exhibitions at The Photographers' Gallery in London. The shows set out to illustrate how their personal photographs influenced and informed the work for which they are better known. Art critic Charlotte Mullins gives her response.
As a new interpretation of Alexandre Dumas' The Three Musketeers begins on BBC One, Stephen Armstrong considers the enduring appeal of the swashbuckling trio and how each generation has been reflected in new Musketeer adaptations.
Visual effects expert Tim Webber has been Oscar-nominated for sending George Clooney and Sandra Bullock into space in the film Gravity. He reveals that - despite having designed virtual worlds for films including Avatar and Where The Wild Things Are - creating the illusion of zero gravity was the most challenging work of his career.
