Eastenders returns, Composer Errollyn Wallen, Katy Perry profiled, I'm Thinking of Ending Things reviewed

British composer Errollyn Wallen has been putting the finishing touches to her new arrangement of the Hubert Parry hymn Jerusalem, to be performed as part of a very different Last Night of the Proms. After a public row about whether to drop the traditional favourites that make up the concert's programme, the Proms announced new versions for a smaller, socially-distanced orchestra with no choir. Errollyn joins Samira to discuss the work of arranging well-loved music, her relationship with Jerusalem, and the Proms. As Eastenders returns to our screens, after an unprecedented 3 month hiatus, we speak to the show’s Executive Producer Jon Sen to find out how they’ve been filming with social distancing and how coronavirus has affected the storylines we’ll be seeing on screen.Ryan Gilbey reviews new Netflix psychological horror film I’m Thinking of Ending Things, based on Iain Reid’s book and adapted into a screenplay by director Charlie Kaufman.
