Lenny Henry, Al Pacino in Danny Collins, Eileen Cooper, Library thefts

John Wilson meets Lenny Henry, who is having a busy year. For his new role in the third series of Kay Mellor's drama about the impact of winning the lottery - The Syndicate - he's had to stretch his acting muscles as he's taken on the part of a person with Asperger's Syndrome. He's preparing to appear in a new theatre production of Educating Rita, and the casting of Danny and the Human Zoo, the 90-minute drama he's written about his teenage years in 1970s Dudley, has just been announced. Al Pacino returns to the big screen in Danny Collins, playing an ageing rock star whose life changes when he is given a letter written to him by John Lennon many years earlier, which he never received. Antonia Quirke reviews the film in which Pacino stars alongside Annette Bening and Christopher Plummer. Artist Eileen Cooper, the first woman to be elected Keeper at the Royal Academy of Arts, discusses her new exhibition, Hide and Seek, and talks about the position of women in the art world. The theft of rare books, maps and manuscripts from heritage libraries around the world is on the rise. Next month a British Library conference brings together experts to advise libraries on the problem and how to stop further vandalism. John Wilson speaks to art recovery expert Chris Marinello about how library thieves operate and what can be done to stop them. Presenter John Wilson Producer: Julian May.…read more
