BBC Proms 2012
Leonard Bernstein's Mass receives its first complete performance at the Proms. As to why it's taken more than four decades to get to the classical music festival following its New York debut in 1971, this may have something to do with the sheer complexity of staging an unconventional work (some Catholics initially saw it as blasphemous) rooted in great part in musical theatre. Expect conductor Kristjan Järvi to be taking a deep breath then, as he steps up to conduct the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, sundry choirs and choruses, and even a rock group. Jonathan Wright

Director tells Edinburgh television festival he is still bitter after his run-in with the singer
The award-winning director behind the 7 Up series has spoken for the first time of his disappointment and bitterness that a dispute with Mick Jagger prevented the release of a potentially landmark Rolling Stones documentary he shot a decade ago.
Michael Apted revealed that he occasionally screens a rough cut of a feature-length documentary, which includes footage of rehearsals and the opening dates of the Rolling Stones' record breaking 40th anniversary Licks tour, for friends. However, the film, shot in 2002, has never been released.
Apted said that Jagger told him during a meeting in Las Vegas that the film he had delivered as a rough cut would not do the band any good, adding that the Rolling Stones frontman had brought "his hitman in to deal with it".
Apted added that the project, on which he worked for several months, »

Returning home from work, Mia (Jodie Whittaker – Good, Venus, St. Trinian’s & St. Trinian’s 2: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold) witnesses an aged woman leap from a window.

Tomori Films have just served up the full works for their forthcoming film A Thousand Kisses Deep, namely a first look poster and trailer for the film as well as a smattering of images to tease and intrigue in equal measure.
The trailer below does hint at the larger story in play here, and the synopsis seemingly gives everything away so be wary of this when you cast your eyes down. The reason I’ll see it? Jodie Whittaker.
Attack the Block was a nice stepping stone to the side after her role in Venus, but it’s the lesser seen work that’s impressed. The recent short film Smoke and her Black Mirror appearance showed signs of greatness and I’m very hopeful she’ll seek out these challenging roles in the future. Here’s hoping A Thousand Kisses Deep gives her that opportunity.
Here’s the educational and »
