Samira Ahmed talks to Simon Pegg, writer and star of the film Star Trek: Beyond.

Front Row marks the 150th birthday of Beatrix Potter, discussing the darker side of her children's stories with Kathryn Hughes and Sally Gardner.

Stalking the Bogeyman is a new play created by David Holthouse and Markus Potter, based on David's own experience of rape as a child and the revenge he plans to reap on his attacker.

And should we follow Steven Spielberg's example and bribe our children to watch black and white films? Samira talks to BFI Family Film Programmer Justin Johnson.

Presenter: Samira Ahmed
Producer: Timothy Prosser.
