On 15 February 2003, 15 million people marched through the streets of 800 cities around the world against the impending war on Iraq. We Are Many is the story of the biggest protest in history. Kirsty speaks to director Amir Amirani about making the documentary film over 9 years.

Sun Trap is a new crime comedy series on BBC One from the director of The Inbetweeners the Movie. Starring Bradley Walsh and Kayvan Novak as an undercover reporter and his former mentor who solve mysteries on a fictional Spanish island. Boyd Hilton reviews.

Cynthia Bond is the latest author to be championed by Oprah Winfrey, for her debut novel Ruby. Drawing comparisons to Toni Morrison, the novel explores the sexual and racial brutality of 1950s East Texas.

The 1928 silent film classic La Passion de Jeanne d'Arc was originally made without an accompanying musical score. Donald Greig of the Orlando Consort has now written one with pure voices singing music of the time of Joan of Arc herself. He and the celebrated silent film pianist Neil Brand, who has accompanied the film many times, talk to Kirsty about creating a score that works.
