Taxi Tehran, The Dresser, Cumberland Gallery, Slade House, Moderate Soprano
The week's cultural highlights, including Jafar Panahi's film Taxi Tehran, The Dresser on BBC TV, Hampton Court's Cumberland Gallery and David Mitchell's Slade House.
Even though he's banned from making films in his home country, Iranian director Jafar Panahi's film Taxi Tehran won this year's Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival. Was this a largely political or aesthetic award?
Ronald Harwood's play The Dresser became an award-winning film in 1983. A new version for BBC TV stars Anthony Hopkins and Ian McKellen
Hampton Court houses just a few paintings from The Royal Collection in The Cumberland Gallery. It's a small sample of the glorious riches The Queen holds in trust for the nation.
David Mitchell's new novel Slade House tells a spooky tale of mindbending, timeslips and soul-stripping.
David Hare's play The Moderate Soprano is about the beginnings of Glyndebourne Opera in the 1930s and its eccentric founder Capt John Christie
