Architect Amanda Levete gives John Wilson a tour of the building site that will be a new £30m addition to the V&A in London, due to open in 2017. The main elements to her designs are a new spacious gallery for temporary exhibitions, and a new entrance and porcelain-tiled courtyard for the museum.

Amy Schumer stars in, and has written, a new comedy Trainwreck, directed by Judd Apatow. Meryl O'Rourke reviews the film.

Stephen Kelman was nominated for the Booker Prize for his debut novel Pigeon English. He discusses his new novel Man on Fire, based on the life of an Indian world-record-breaker whom Kelman befriended after seeing him in a TV documentary.

Documentary film The Wolfpack focuses on a group of brothers raised in Manhattan's Lower East Side but kept hidden indoors by their domineering father for most of their lives. Director Crystal Moselle discusses how she came across their story and the crucial part that cinema played in their sheltered lives.
