Eames exhibition, Marlon Brando documentary, Janet Suzman

The husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames are widely regarded as America's most important designers, perhaps best remembered for their mid-century plywood and fiberglass furniture. Critic Corinne Julius joins Samira at a new exhibition at the Barbican in London where they explore their enduring appeal. From A Streetcar named Desire and The Godfather, to Last Tango in Paris and Apocalypse Now, Marlon Brando is hailed by many as one of the great actors. Now 300 hours of audio tapes have revealed the painful childhood and dysfunctional adulthood that he drew on for his art. Listen to Me Marlon sets out to document his life and work in his own words.
