Vanessa Redgrave, Imperium, French African artefacts, Sally Rooney

Vanessa Redgrave has just been awarded the Richard Harris Award which is given to an actor for their outstanding contribution to British film. She talks to Stig about her long career in cinema and theatre.

The writer and classical historian Natalie Haynes has seen the production and gives her verdict.
