Felicity Jones on playing US Supreme Court judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Felicity Jones discusses her new film On the Basis of Sex, in which she plays Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the American Supreme Court Judge who rose to prominence as a lawyer in landmark cases against gender discrimination.

Vue, one of the UK’s biggest cinema chains, has threatened to boycott the Baftas after the film Roma, which they describe as a ‘made for TV’ film, won four awards including Best Film. John is joined by Vue’s chief executive Tim Richards, who has written an open letter to Bafta,.

As Steve Coogan’s awkwardly hilarious creation Alan Partridge returns for a new series called This Time With Alan Partridge, critic Julia Raeside delivers her verdict.

Performance artist Marina Abramović presents her new mixed reality artwork, a wearable augmented experience involving VR headsets which produce an image of Marina in the room. John talks to Marina and her collaborator Todd Eckert about the future artistic possibilities of the VR technology.

Presenter: John Wilson
Producer: Timothy Prosser
