David Hare's Red Barn at London's National, Ken Loach's I Daniel Blake, HBO's The Young Pope, Sebastian Barry's novel Days Without End, Yves Klein retrospective at Tate Liverpool.

David Hare's latest play The Red Barn is an adaptation of a Georges Simenon thriller now at London's National Theatre

Ken Loach's new film I Daniel Blake is a typically hard-hitting reflection on the political state of modern Britain. It won this year's Palme d'Or, will it win over the reviewers?

The Young Pope is a new series from Sky Atlantic starring Jude Law as the first American pontiff; new, controversial and unconventional Pope Pius XIII (born Lenny Belardo)

Award-winning Irish novelist Sebastian Barry's newest work Days Without End is set in 1850s America following soldiers fighting in the Indian Wars and then in the Civil War.

We visit the Yves Klein retrospective at Tate Liverpool. He was a leading member of the Nouveau Realisme movement (and invented his own shade of blue) before dying at the age of 34

Tom Sutcliffe's guests are Shahidha Bari, Demetrios Matheou and Polly Samson.
