Bohemian Rhapsody, the new biopic of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, is finally in cinemas after eight years in the making. During production, two leading actors quit the project before Rami Malek took on the role of Freddie Mercury, Kate Mossman considers if film is worth the wait. As he approaches his 80th birthday this week, the conductor and composer Howard Blake looks back over his career which has included more than 700 compositions, including the music for 65 films – most famously for The Snowman - and his Piano Concerto to mark Princess Diana’s 30th birthday. The Hepworth Prize for Sculpture is worth £30,000 to the winning artist recognised for their contribution to contemporary sculpture. This week an exhibition opens at Hepworth Wakefield showing the shortlisted artists Michael Dean, Mona Hatoum, Magali Reus, Phillip Lai and Cerith Wyn Evans. Art critic Adrian Searle considers their work and what they tell us about sculpture in the UK today. Presenter: Kirsty Lang Producer: Kate Bullivant
