The Japanese anime studio Studio Ghibli is 33 years old this year, and from Spirited Away to Kiki's Delivery Service, it's responsible for some of the most popular animated films ever made.

Film geek Michael Leader has seen all 20-odd of them, but his colleague Jake Cunningham has hardly seen any. So each week they watch one, share their thoughts about it and some interesting facts about how it was made, and then rank them all from best to worst.

'Ghibliotheque' is a relaxed but informative consideration of the studio's back catalogue, which coincides with a screening of all the Ghibli films on the English digital TV network Film4.
