Daniel Radcliffe, I Am Not a Witch, Wim Wenders, Taj Mahal

Daniel Radcliffe on filming in the jungle and Wim Wenders on polaroids of his early films.

Daniel Radcliffe stars in new film Jungle, about the real experience of Yossi Ghinsberg who spent three weeks lost in the Bolivian jungle. Daniel explains what it was like to portray this epic fight for survival on screen.

I Am Not a Witch was one of the highlights of this year's Cannes film festival. The satirical drama, set in Zambia, about a young girl accused of being a witch, is now due to open in the UK. African film curator Nadia Denton reviews.

The Taj Mahal has been at the centre of a set of controversies in recent months regarding its significance to Indian culture. BBC Delhi correspondent Geeta Pandey reports on the dispute which flared up again last weekend.

Film director Wim Wenders, who brought us Wings of Desire, Paris, Texas, and Buena Vista Social Club, discusses a new exhibition of Polaroid photos he took during the 1970s and early 1980s, and the extent to which they influenced his work on the big screen.
