7:12 The history of colour
David Coles will be talking to us about the History of Colour and how he came to create oil paint.
From cow's urine to beatle's blood - the ingredients that are used to make oil paint and weird and equally wonderful.
In David Coles exhibition 'Chromotopia' he tracks the history of over 200 pigments - some deadly, some revolting, and some so rare and expensive they are no longer in circulation.
7:30 At The Movies
On At The Movies, Simon Morris looks at the new Scarlett Johanssen comedy Rough Night, and two films "based on real life" - Churchill, which covers Winston Churchill's state of mind in the days leading up to D Day, and All Eyez On Me - the life and times of rapper Tupac Shakur.
