Kirsty Lang talks to conductor and violinist Bernard Haitink as he looks back over his career as he celebrates his 85th birthday. Catherine Bray reviews buddy cop movie sequel 22 Jump Street, starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. Róisín Murphy, the lead singer of Moloko, is back with a solo EP all in Italian, covering some classic Italian torchsongs. She tells Kirsty why she's decided to make life difficult for herself by singing in a language she can't speak fluently. And the directors of a new free-running theatre show The Roof, which takes place in a converted outdoor car park next to London's National Theatre, discuss the challenges of parkour on rooftops and why the audience are handed out headphones as they enter the arena.
