Spike Lee and Thelma Schoonmaker, and Albert Finney remembered

This weekend sees the announcement of the winners of this year's Baftas - the British Academy Film Awards - and Stig talks to two of the stars in London for the event. Director Spike Lee attracted a great deal of attention with his first feature She's Gotta Have It in 1986, yet despite his later films including Do the Right Thing, Mo' Better Blues, Malcolm X and Summer of Sam, he was never nominated in the director category for either the Oscars or the Baftas. But this year he is in the running at both events for his latest film BlacKkKlansman, the true story of a black police officer infiltrating the Ku Klux Klan. Spike Lee discusses the film which is Bafta-nominated for Best Director, Best Film, and Best Adapted Screenplay. Oscar-winner Thelma Schoonmaker has been editing the films of Martin Scorsese for over five decades including Raging Bull, Goodfellas, The Departed and The Wolf of Wall Street. This Sunday she will receive the British Academy of Film and Television Arts' highest accolade, the BAFTA Fellowship. She looks back at her career and their extraordinary partnership. And we remember the stage and screen actor Albert Finney, whose death was announced today. Finney's notable roles included the films Saturday Night and Sunday Morning and Tom Jones, and he won a Bafta for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in the TV film The Gathering Storm. The film's director Richard Loncraine looks back at Albert Finney's career. Presenter Stig Abell Producer Jerome Weatherald…read more
