Dennis Hopper starred in cult films like Easy Rider and Apocalypse Now - but he was also a fine photographer. In tonight's Front Row, Eamonn McCabe and John Wilson consider a new exhibition of Hopper's images. Also in the programme: composer David Arnold - whose soundtracks include Bond films, Sherlock and the London 2012 Olympic closing ceremony - on his new musical Made in Dagenham; a review of the biopic Seve - the rags-to-riches story of charismatic golfer Seve Ballesteros. Plus a look at the art market's incredible growth over the past twenty years: some contemporary pieces now sell for tens of millions of pounds - can these prices ever be justified?
