Mark Kermode meets Academy Award winner Kathryn Bigelow to talk about the controversy surrounding her latest film 'Zero Dark Thirty'. Based on real events, the film charts the decade-long hunt for Osama bin Laden and his death during a Navy S.E.A.L. operation in 2011. Author, Margaret Drabble meets her old university friend novelist, Bernadine Bishop, whose latest book 'Unexpected Lessons in Love' explores friendship and loss as a woman battling with cancer is confronted with a newborn grandson she didn't know existed. All this AND a look at the photography of Juergen Teller.
