The Walk, Simon Armitage, Unforgotten, Bernard Sumner

The Walk, a new film from director Robert Zemeckis, charts high wire artist Philippe Petit's tightrope walk between the twin towers of the World Trade Centre. Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Petit and Ben Kingsley as his mentor, it gives a fantastical spin to the real life event that stunned the world in 1974. Critic Sophia McDougall reviews. Poet Simon Armitage concludes the theatrical story he began last year with a play drawn from Homer's The Iliad, by bringing The Odyssey: Missing Presumed Dead to the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool. He explains his modern retelling of Homer's classic in which Smith - a senior government minister - plunges back into ancient Greece to become Odysseus and encounters creatures such as the Cyclops and the Sirens on his long journey back to the present day. Unforgotten is a new TV crime drama starring Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar as detectives investigating the murder of a boy in 1976; the year of the Notting Hill Riots, the birth of Punk, and the great heat wave. Crime writer Dreda Say Mitchell reviews. Bernard Sumner, one of the founding members of New Order, talks about the group's tenth studio album, Music Complete. He discusses the return to the classic New Order sound, his difficult relationship with bass guitarist Peter Hook and how the band's music has contributed to the urban regeneration of Manchester.
