Woody Allen: Film by Film
Everyone has their favourite Woody Allen film – whether it’s one of his nervous but hilarious urban romances such as Annie Hallor Manhattan, or the later, lighter dramas such as Vicky Cristina Barcelona or Blue Jasmine. Film critic Jason Solomons and broadcaster Robert Elms have been talking London films on the radio for over 15 years now, every week. Guests on the show have included Ray Winstone, Gary Oldman, Mike Leigh, Ken Loach, Martin Short, James Corden, Amma Asante, Dev Patel, Helen Mirren, Eddie Marsan, Shane Meadows, Nicholas Hytner, David Oyelowo, Lord Puttnam, Martin Freeman, Danny Boyle, Rachel Ward, Sean Bean, Gael Garcia Bernal, Alfonso Cuaron, Joe Wright, Tim Spall and Celia Imrie. Join BBC Radio London’s renowned filmic double act as they talk Woody Allen — and probably jazz.
