Jim Broadbent and Patrick Barlow, Victoria and Albert New Galleries, By the Sea, TV box sets

Jim Broadbent and Patrick Barlow first worked together more than 30 years ago in The National Theatre of Brent. This year they've reunited for a production of A Christmas Carol which Patrick has adapted for the stage, and in which Jim Broadbent plays an ebullient and nasty Scrooge. They discuss the production with Samira. Angelia Jolie Pitt's latest directorial effort is By the Sea, a drama about a failing marriage, in which she stars opposite her real life husband Brad Pitt. Jenny McCartney reviews. Martin Roth, the director of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, reveals the latest stage of its huge renovation project. The new galleries - Europe 1600-1815 - have cost 12.5 million pounds, so how does the re-examined collection inform what we think of Europe today?
