Angélique Kidjo, Book Club reviewed, Roseanne controversy, novelist Anuradha Roy

Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen star in the rom-com Book Club which makes its older cast the heart of the story. But does it make good use of such stellar talent? Angie Errigo reviews. Singer-song writer Angélique Kidjo performs live from her new album Remain In Light, which re-imagines track-by-track the original post-punk band Talking Heads' landmark album. She talks about making the album and why she wants to take Rock back to Africa. As Roseanne, the top rated American sitcom, is dramatically axed following offensive tweets sent by it's star Roseanne Barr, John discusses the fallout with Washington Post TV critic Hank Stuever.
