In this episode we chat to actor David Fynn, the leading man from Andrew Lloyd Webber's latest hit West End musical, 'School of Rock'! David's acting career has been incredibly varied, from performing at theatres such as 'The National Theatre' and 'The Donmar Warehouse', to appearing in hit television shows such as 'The Inbetweeners', 'Sherlock', 'Game of Thrones', 'Doctor Who' and most notably the hit US NBC sit-com 'Undateable'. Having been based in Los Angeles for the last three years, David is now back in London to open 'School of Rock' following the show's huge success on Broadway.

Lord Lloyd Webber discusses joining forces with Downton creator Julian Fellowes and a cast of 39 children for his new stage adaptation of the Jack Black film School of Rock. He tells Samira how he hopes the production will serve as a reminder of how important the arts are in education. Actor Ewan McGregor talks about adapting Philip Roth's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, American Pastoral, in his directorial debut and why he's returning to the role of Renton, 20 years on from Trainspotting. Elton John owns one of the best photography collections in the world and now he's loaned some of them to the Tate Modern in London. The Radical Eye: Modernist Photography includes Man Ray's Glass Tears, Dorothea Lange's Migrant Mother and Edward Weston's portrait of Igor Stravinsky.

Forza! - Hånandets konst  

Älskade toner används gärna för att hata motståndarna på fotbollsplanen – och läktarna. Ramsorna förbannar, förfasar och förödmjukar motståndarna med både stil och lagvidriga övertramp. Hånandet sker i rakt nedstigande led från Shakespeares publik på The Globe. Men den starkaste läktarsången är kanske tystnaden? I det här programmet pratar vi med domaren Martin Hansson, AIK-supportern Maria Carlson, politikern Caroline Szyber, författaren och musikrecenscenten Andreas Palmaer. Musiken i programmet är skapad av bland andra Andrew Lloyd Webber, Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, Torsten Flinck, Manic Street Preachers, John Cage, Händel.Det här är andra delen av Jesper Tillbergs serie om musiken inom läktarkulturen.

Harry Rabinowitz  

Kirsty's castaway this week is the conductor and composer Harry Rabinowitz. His list of credits and collaborations read like a Who's Who of 20th century music - Gracie Fields, Charles Aznavour, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Matt Monro & Barbra Streisand are only a handful of the stellar names who've benefitted from his talents. He's conducted a lot of movie scores too, including Chariots of Fire and The Talented Mr Ripley; indeed the late director Anthony Minghella described him as "the UK's best kept secret". It wasn't an illustrious start; his first job was playing sheet music for prospective customers in a Johannesburg department store - he was fired after 6 weeks. His first go at conducting was enhanced not by an elegant baton of the finest Maplewood but a rolled up old newspaper. He's almost a hundred years old now, still plays the piano every day and only retired from the concert platform six years ago at the age of 94. Producer: Sarah Taylor.
