Matthew Bourne discusses his stage version of the classic British film The Red Shoes.

Matthew Bourne on his stage version of The Red Shoes, musician and producer Marius de Vries discusses working on La La Land, the challenge of satirising Donald Trump.

Dance choreographer and director Matthew Bourne's adaptation of The Red Shoes, inspired by the 1948 Powell and Pressburger film and the fairy-tale by Hans Christian Andersen, opened at Sadler's Wells last night before embarking on a national tour. John Wilson talks to Sir Matthew Bourne about bringing his adaptation to the stage, and the forthcoming year-long programme celebrating the 30th anniversary of Bourne's company, New Adventures.

Bafta-winning music producer and composer Marius de Vries, who has worked extensively in film and contemporary music, talks to John Wilson about his latest role on the hit musical film La La Land, and his involvement in some of the most high-profile artists of the past two decades, including Madonna, Bowie, and U2.

Donald Trump provided plenty of material for comedians when he was running for president, but what effect will the notoriously litigious businessman have on satirists when he is in office? Political comedian Andy Zaltzman, photographer Alison Jackson, and comedy journalist Elise Czajkowski join us to discuss.

Game of Thrones creator George RR Martin, plus Robin Williams remembered. With Kirsty Lang

Kirsty Lang talks to Game of Thrones creator George RR Martin, plus a review of The Congress, photographer Alison Jackson on her first opera, and Terry Gilliam on Robin Williams.

George RR Martin, whose epic series of fantasy novels A Song Of Ice And Fire formed the basis for the TV hit Game Of Thrones, discusses creating an imaginary world loosely based on historical fiction. Alison Jackson is known for creating spoof photographs of celebrities caught in compromising positions, such as Madonna changing nappies or a member of the Royal Family in the bath. Having worked in photography, film and television, Alison Jackson is now producing an opera featuring celebrity-lookalikes, including Nigella Lawson, Boris Johnson and Prince Harry, singing well-known arias. Also tonight: Viv Groskop reviews the new film The Congress starring Robin Wright and Jon Hamm, and Terry Gilliam remembers the actor and comedian Robin Williams.
