Charlotte Rampling, Berlioz Anniversary, Leveret Perform Live

Charlotte Rampling discusses her new film Hannah, for which she won Best Actress at the Venice Film Festival playing a woman shunned by her family and society. She also talks about her five decade career, from Georgy Girl to her recent Oscar-nominated performance in 45 Years. Hector Berlioz died 150 years ago next week. Best-known for his Symphony Fantastique - described by Leonard Bernstein as the first musical work of psychedelia, he wrote the first symphony to feature the viola as a solo instrument, and once ascribed a piece to another composer because he thought the critics would take against it if they knew it was his. Conductor Jeremy Summerly discusses the composers legacy. Folk trio Leveret are about to release their fourth album, Diversions.
