Stanley Tucci

Antonia Quirke talks to Stanley Tucci about Final Portrait, his biopic of artist Giacometti.

With Antonia Quirke

Stanley Tucci talks about his latest film as writer/director, Final Portrait, the result of a life-long obsession with the artist Giacometti, which was inspired by his artist father.

Woman in Black director James Watkins waxes lyrical about the work of Jean-Pierre Melville, the French film-maker who was so obsessed with American culture that he changed his name in honour of the author of Moby Dick.

Listener Paul Kleiman talks about his mother Shirley Finn, who kept a record of almost every day of her adult life, including the years she spent in the British film industry as a "script girl".
