Leonardo DiCaprio, The Rack Pack, Elizabeth

Leonardo DiCaprio, star of The Revenant which has recently been nominated for 12 Oscars, talks to Kirsty about the film's arduous production. TV drama The Rack Pack tells the story of Britain's obsession with snooker in the mid-1980s and the rivalry between Alex 'Hurricane' Higgins and Steve Davis. Sports writer Alyson Rudd and film critic Andrew Collins review. Author and contributing editor of The Bookseller, Cathy Rentzenbrink, considers the value of literary festivals to authors, following Philip Pullman's resignation as patron of the Oxford literary festival over its refusal to pay the writers who appear there.

Presented by Kirsty Lang Produced by Ella-mai Robey.…read more
