Churchill in the movies; Rosamund Pike

Francine Stock talks to director Joe Wright about his Winston Churchill bio-pic The Darkest Hour and our continuing fascination with Britain's most famous prime minister.

With Francine Stock.

The Darkest Hour is the second bio-pic about Winston Churchill in 12 months. Director Joe Wright discusses our continuing fascination with Britain's most famous prime minister and reveals why he cast Gary Oldman in the lead role and why some people doubted his sanity when they heard the news.

Gone Girl star Rosamund Pike is in studio to discuss her role in gritty western Hostiles.

Sandra Hebron and Nadia Denton slug it out to get their chosen director into The Film Programme's A to Z of film-makers.
