One Thousand And One Nights is a series of folk tales complied in Arabic from as early as the 9th century. There are many versions of the book from which famous stories such as Aladdin and Ali Baba and the forty thieves originate from.

We're watching a 2000 TV mini series 'Arabian Nights' which covers some of the original book. Has this version stood the test of time as the book has? If the casting has anything to go by maybe not!

Also we actually chat about a current film 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood' and what else is coming up that we want to see.
