George RR Martin; Alison Jackson; The Congress

George RR Martin, whose epic series of fantasy novels A Song Of Ice And Fire formed the basis for the TV hit Game Of Thrones, discusses creating an imaginary world loosely based on historical fiction. Alison Jackson is known for creating spoof photographs of celebrities caught in compromising positions, such as Madonna changing nappies or a member of the Royal Family in the bath. Having worked in photography, film and television, Alison Jackson is now producing an opera featuring celebrity-lookalikes, including Nigella Lawson, Boris Johnson and Prince Harry, singing well-known arias. Also tonight: Viv Groskop reviews the new film The Congress starring Robin Wright and Jon Hamm, and Terry Gilliam remembers the actor and comedian Robin Williams.
