Ab Fab director Mandie Fletcher, Phill Jupitus on Trumpton's creator, Olivia de Havilland turns 100

Director Mandie Fletcher discusses the challenges of taking Joanna Lumley, Jennifer Saunders and Absolutely Fabulous from the small to the big screen.

Matthew Sweet celebrates the 100th birthday of Olivia de Havilland, one of last great stars of Hollywood's golden era, whose films include Gone with The Wind and The Heiress.
