With Antonia Quirke

Rupert Everett approaches the final chapter on his passion project about Oscar Wilde as The Happy Prince is released for home entertainment. He reflects on a journey that has lasted years and reveals why we should listen to the birdsong on the soundtrack and why it has such personal significance for him.

La La Land director Damien Chazelle on why he decided to make a film about the moon landing and how he tried to make it as authentic as humanly possible. He also reflects on the evening last year when his musical was mistakenly given the Oscar for best picture.

Historian Kate Williams takes up arms in Pitch Battle as she nominates a historical figure that deserves the movie treatment - a female Irish pirate who stood up to Elizabeth I.
