Kenneth Branagh, Glenda Jackson, The art of Alexander Calder

Kenneth Branagh discusses the inaugural season of his West End theatre company as he directs and stars in Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale and Terence Rattigan's Harlequinade in tandem. Alexander Calder was an American sculptor known as the originator of the mobile, delicately balanced and suspended shapes that move in response to touch or air currents. His grandson Sandy Rower talks to John about Calder's work as Tate Modern presents the UK's largest ever exhibition of the artist's work.
