With Francine Stock.

Nick Cave discusses a documentary about his life and work called 20,000 Days On Earth, which mixes fact with fiction, as film-makers Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard placed the singer in a series of staged encounters and let the cameras roll. Cave explains why he wasn't entirely happy with some of the things they asked him to do.

Novelist Jonathan Coe discusses the Claudette Colbert comedy Midnight, written by one of his film heroes, Billy Wilder

The Riot Club director Lone Scherfig reveals what she thinks of the British class system as depicted in her adaptation of Laura Wade's play Posh, which displays the drunken antics of a secret society at Oxford University, not unlike The Bullingdon Club which boasted David Cameron as one of its members.
