Tonight's Front Row considers the big-screen debut of Mrs Brown, Brendan O'Carroll's TV creation.

Also in the programme - Richard Wilson on performing Beckett's monologue, Krapp's Last Tape; Arcade Fire's Will Butler speaks from Glastonbury as the band prepares to go onstage; and Michelle Magorian recalls writing her classic novel, Goodnight Mister Tom. Plus, how artists respond creatively to bridges. Presenter: Matthew D'Ancona Producer: Rebecca Nicholson.
