With Francine Stock

Writer/director Paul King and writer Simon Farnaby reveal why Hugh Grant's character in Paddington 2, a pompous washed-up actor, was originally called Hugh Grant in the first draft of the script.

Award winning director Lynne Ramsay discusses You Were Never Really Here and why her star Joaquin Phoenix barely understood a word she said when she offered him the role of a hit-man called Joe.

Director Alexandra Dean discusses her documentary Bombshell about actor Hedy Lamarr's unlikely other career as an inventor of technology that preceded Wi-Fi and GPS.
