Front Row reveals this year's Costa Book Awards shortlist. Critic Alex Clark comments on the authors chosen in the five categories; novel, first novel, poetry, biography and children's fiction. The Hunger Games' film franchise reaches its conclusion with Mockingjay: Part 2, with Jennifer Lawrence reprising her role as the rebellious Katniss Everdeen for the last time. Sophia McDougall reviews the film which is released in UK cinemas this week.
