2:10 BBC Witness - Albert Pierrepoint

Today's edition of our BBC history programme 'Witness' uses archive recordings to tell the story of Britain's most famous hangman. During the 1940s and 50s, he was responsible for the execution of some of Britain's most notorious murderers and was sent to Germany to hang more than 200 Nazi war criminals after WW2. He said he was always determined to treat prisoners with dignity and respect whatever their crime.

This week on the Great NZ Concert series we are featuring Dame Kiri Te Kanawa's homecoming tour of January 1990. 

3:10 Feature Interview - Illeana Douglas

When director Martin Scorsese heard actress Illeana Douglas scream he cast her in his movie Cape Fear. Her unique look landed her roles in movies like  "To Die For,"  and  "Picture Perfect" and  she had recurring roles on "The Larry Sanders Show" and "Six Feet Under". She and Scorsese were partners for several years, giving her a front row seat to the best and worst in Hollywood. She writes about her love for movies and film making as an actress and a fan in her new book, I Blame Dennis Hopper.  Jesse Mulligan talks to Illeana Douglas.

3:30 Our Changing World - Justin Gregory
