Fresh from the first awards bash of the season, I catch up with winners from the British Independent Film Awards - Celeste Bell who carried of two prizes including Best Documentary for Poly Styrene: I Am Not a Cliche about her Mum, Poly Styrene, the late lead singer of former punk band X-Ray Spex; and Breakthrough Performance winner Nell Barlow, from lovely coming-of-age romance Sweetheart.

And, as the European Film Awards take place in Berlin, I meet up with nominee for Best Director, Film and Screenplay, Paolo Sorrentino to discuss Naples, Maradona and his brilliant film about growing up there, The Hand of God. There's also a chance to win a cookbook of favourite Neapolitan recipes, written by Paolo's wife Daniella D'Antonio.

I've got reviews of West Side Story, Petite Maman and two tennis movies, so subscribe, listen, rate and enter the competition. Buon appetito...
