Peter Cook, Hitchcock/Truffaut, Tabletop Shakespeare, Tim Sayer

Professor Sir Peter Cook received a knighthood for services to architecture and was awarded the Royal Gold Medal from the Royal Institute of British Architecture, yet he has never designed a building in Britain - until now. He shows us around the drawing studio he's created for the Arts University Bournemouth. In 1962, Francois Truffaut persuaded fellow film director Alfred Hitchcock to sit with him for a week-long interview in which they discussed the secrets of cinema. Hannah McGill reviews a new documentary about this meeting, which resulted in Truffaut's seminal book "Hitchcock/Truffaut". The Barbican is staging Shakespeare as we've never seen it before; each of his 36 plays have been condensed and are presented on a table top using a cast of everyday objects. Macbeth is a cheese grater, Pericles a light bulb and Hamlet's a bottle of ink. Tim Etchells from Forced Entertainment explains why. The Hepworth Wakefield gallery has announced details of one of the UK's largest bequests. It's one of the most significant gifts received from a private collector. Tim Sayer was a passionate collector, a self-confessed 'art-oholic', and a retired BBC Radio 4 newswriter. So how did he acquire such an important collection?
