Tom Hardy, Dope, Anne Boleyn's songbook

Actor Tom Hardy (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Bronson, Locke) on his film about the notorious East End gangsters Reggie and Ronnie Kray, Legend. He talks to Kirsty about the challenges of taking on the roles of both twins, the importance of having the story told through the voice of Reggie's wife Frances, and playing difficult or violent characters without judging them or making them heroes. Dope centres on three teenagers obsessed with 90s hip-hop culture and what their classmates dub "white-people stuff" - until a chance encounter with a drug dealer leads them into an adventure. Bim Adewunmi reviews. The government and local authorities own art worth at least £3.5 billion, but the Taxpayers' Alliance say that only 3% of it is available for the public to view. John O'Connell of the Taxpayers' Alliance and Sharon Heal of the Museums Association join Kirsty to discuss. And Kirsty is given rare access to the original songbook thought to have belonged to Anne Boleyn, a collection of her favourite pieces of music, which has been recorded for the first time.
