He Named Me Malala, Nicola Benedetti and Wynton Marsalis, Alistair McDowall, War Horse

He Named Me Malala is a new film documentary about Malala Yousafzai, the young woman from Pakistan who was shot in the head by the Taliban for speaking out in support of the education of girls. Novelist Kamila Shamsie reviews this intimate portrait of the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. On Friday, violinist Nicola Benedetti will perform the world premiere of the violin concerto that composer Wynton Marsalis has written for her. They talk to Samira about how their five year collaboration came about. As Alistair McDowall's hit play, Pomona, opens in Manchester, he reveals how his dystopian thriller was inspired by an abandoned island near the centre of the city. All this week, as part of the BBC's On Stage Season, Front Row is discovering what happens backstage in theatres across the country just before the curtain goes up. Tonight we follow a fight rehearsal with a difference as Topthorn and Joey, the life-size equestrian puppets in War Horse, and their six puppeteers prepare to do battle.
