David Gilmour, An Inspector Calls, La Famille Bélier, Future Conditional

It's nearly fifty years since David Gilmour was invited to join the psychedelic rock band Pink Floyd. He went on to be the co-writer, vocalist and lead guitarist on some of their most famous albums including Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You were Here and The Wall. In that time he has also made three solo albums, the last of which marked a closer collaboration with his wife, the novelist and lyricist Polly Samson. Kirsty meets up with them both at rehearsals for David's new tour. J. B. Priestley's three-act drama An Inspector Calls was first performed in 1945 in the then Soviet Union before making it onto a UK stage the following year. Since then it has spawned many productions for both stage and screen - with performances from the likes of Ralph Richardson, Alastair Sim, and Tom Mannion as Inspector Goole. As a new adaptation is set to hit our television screens - with David Thewlis taking the lead role - the critic David Benedict takes a look at how it compares to previous productions. The French film La Famille Bélier is a comedy-drama and tells the story of a deaf family with a hearing daughter who has a talent for singing. Filmmaker William Mager reviews. The Old Vic's first new programme of work, with Kevin Spacey's replacement Matthew Warchus, kicks off with a new play called Future Conditional. Both he and playwright Tamsin Oglesby discuss starting the season with a play about the British schooling system.…read more
