In Confidence: Brian Blessed

A larger than life actor who has graced our screens and theatres for more than half a century. From Z Cars and I Claudius on television to Shakespeare and pantomime on the stage he's thrown himself unreservedly into every part he's ever played. Yet has still found time to pursue his other lifelong passion of mountaineering. He's also been willing to parody himself on game shows and comedy programmes by overreacting at 200 decibels. But does he ever feel that, as a consequence, his very subtle acting is not always treated as seriously as it should be by critics? And has any role he's played ever produced a thrill to match the elation he felt when, aged 17, he'd first reached the summit of Mont Blanc.

In Confidence: Fay Weldon

One of the most successful and controversial authors of her generation. For almost half a century, her novels have focused on the frustrations of women trapped in a male-dominated world; but where her protagonists once sought revenge against men - as in the award-winning Life and Loves of a She-Devil - she nowadays focuses on what unites the sexes, rather than what divides them. Indeed, she's angered many feminists in recent years, by saying that women should fake orgasms to please men, and by even appearing to blame some women for their own domestic subordination. So does this feminist icon of the 1970s think that women no longer need to struggle for equality? And what does she mean when she says that "all that anti-man stuff is no longer appropriate"?

In Confidence: Griff Rhys Jones

One man in serious danger of becoming a national treasure. After starting his career as a member of the outrageous and irreverent Not the Nine O'Clock News comedy team, he went on to establish himself as an actor, writer, and television producer, founding his own hugely successful production company, and becoming one of the richest people in British broadcasting. Once a heavy drinker, he's now been teetotal for many years, avoiding showbiz parties and instead spending his time making programmes about sailing, mountaineering, and the preservation of ancient buildings. Does the glamour of the celebrity lifestyle simply hold no interest for him? Or has the atavistic influence of his Welsh Presbyterian ancestors made him actively disapprove of excess and intemperance?

David Garrett: Rock Symphonies

David Garrett is a rock 'n' roll concert violinist. If that sounds like an oxymoron, you'll be surprised by his powerfully fierce take on classic rock anthems when played by he and a symphony orchestra. This ain't long-haired music in a Leonard Bernstein way; it's long-haired music in a mullets and beer bongs kind of way. This concert special was filmed before a live audience at Berlin's open air Wuhlheide Theater. Garrett has touched hearts and astounded audiences around the world by carving out a unique and wholly new artistic path. In a thrilling performance that moves all ages, the young German violinist weaves classical standards like Vivaldi's works with rock and pop hits from the likes of The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith and Nirvana.

Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon

The directorial debut of Mike Myers, AKA Austin Powers, is a star-packed look at a legendary showbiz figure. Shep Gordon is the quintessential talent agent, a mover and a shaker who fell into the job when he met Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix on his first day in LA. His first client was Alice Cooper, his second Pink Floyd. From the weird (he once shared custody of a cat with Cary Grant) to the sublime (he once dated Sharon Stone), his stories are endlessly entertaining. His clients have some tales to tell too - Michael Douglas, Teddy Pendergrass, Sylvester Stallone, Blondie to name a few. Gordon stays on good terms with them all - including playing golf with Alice Cooper. Above it all, everyone says he's a nice guy, a person of integrity and honour, and this spirit shines throughout Myers' lively debut.

The Art of Russia

Andrew Graham-Dixon explores how Russia changed from a feudal nation of aristocratic excess to a hotbed of revolution at the beginning of the 20th century, and how art moved from being a servant of the state to an agent of its destruction. From monuments that celebrate the absolutism of the tsars to the epic Russian landscape as inspiration; from the design and construction of gold and glittering palaces to the minutiae of diamond-encrusted Faberge eggs; and eventually to the stark and radical paintings of the avant-garde, the journey through Russian art history is one of extraordinary beauty and surprise.
