For decades, indigenous Indians have been struggling to shrug off Hollywood stereotypes and develop their own film industry in the hope of creating a more accurate and contemporary picture of their history.

Jane O'Brien reports from New York.

French Bond

In case you've have been fooled into thinking that the English have a monopoly on suave, sophisticated, smooth talking spies with a killer instinct and a taste for tuxedos, a new French movie called Rio Ne Repond Plus - in English they're calling it Lost in Rio - will prove the French can do it too - and their version of James Bond is funny.

Slow art

"What is this life, if full of care we have no time to stand and stare?"

Do we take enough time to enjoy and really appreciate art rather than just witness it? There's a new movement to slow down our encounters with art rather than racing through it.

The Day that Leham Died

On September 15, 2008 Lehman Brothers, one of the oldest and largest investment banks in the world filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. It was the largest bankruptcy case in US history and sent the already unstable markets into an uncontrollable tailspin. As part of the BBC World Service's Aftershock season exploring the impact of the global recession, a play will be broadcast - The Day that Lehman Died - which dramatizes events over the weekend leading up to the bank's collapse. We talk to the play's writer Matthew Solon and director John Dryden.

Re-mastering The Beatles music - a good or bad thing?

Next week sees the release of The Beatles entire back catalogue re-mastered, remixed and cleaned-up for the digital era. This coincides with 'The Beatles: Rock Band' music video game hitting the shops worldwide. The re-mastering process has taken the engineers at the Abbey Road studios in London nearly fours years to complete. But, some argue that the band's music should be heard as it was released back in the '60s and '70s with all those electrical clicks, microphone vocal pops and bad edits which give the music its unique, instantly recognisable sound. Mark is joined by the music critics John Aizlewood and Caspar Llewellyn Smith to discuss.

Writing Sequels

This week Christopher Robin came home to the Hundred Acre Wood after 80 years. Yes, the first authorised sequel to the Winnie-the-Pooh books has been published by a new author. It's a bit of a publishing phenomenon at the moment - the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, A Little Princess, and Dracula have all come back to life this autumn. But why? Eoin Colfer, the best-seller author who was commissioned to continue Douglas Adams's best selling series Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and the Winnie the Pooh expert Brian Sibley discuss the art of the sequel.

Books:

Return to the Hundred Acre Wood - by David Benedictus, with decorations in the style of EH Shepard by Mark Burgess

And Another Thing - by Eoin Colfer is the 6th in the HitchHiker's Guide series

Wishing for Tomorrow - by Hilary McKay is the continuation of Frances Hodson Burnett's A Little Princess

Dracula: The Un-Dead - by Dacre Stoker

Controversies photographic exhibition

An exhibition of photographs called 'controverses' has begun in Brussels and true to its name, it has caused ripples of confusion and consternation. It looks at the many ways in which photographs can be controversial - war photos, the sexualisation of children, the depiction of misery, even the pressures of the anti-smoking lobby are all dealt with. We speak to the show's curator and hear what visitors to the exhibition thought of it.

Chielo Zona Eze

Imagine an African afterlife where God puts the Zimbabwean president on trial. The judges are long-dead heroes of African culture and politics. The witnesses are ordinary Zimbabweans. What do they say? How will he defend himself and what will be the verdict? This is the scenario of Chielo Zona Eze's new novel The Trial of Robert Mugabe. Find out more on The Strand.

Remembering Nusrat

It's been a wonderful co-operative piece of work to fuse together the 'to the beat' perfection required for a 75 piece symphony orchestra to function properly and the extemporising tradition of nine Qawwalli singers paying tribute to the life and work of Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Mark Coles talks to City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra conductor Michael Seal and to Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Nusrat's nephew, successor and Qawwalli singer. That's 'Remembering Nusrat' on The Strand.

In 1957 a young man said good-bye to his father in a small village in Sierra Leone. He wouldn't see home again for eight years.

That man was Aminatta Forna's late father, Mohamed Forna, just one of thousands of Africans who left home on scholarship to overseas universities.

In the dying hours of colonial rule these men and women were hand picked to to lead their countries towards a bright new dawn, the beneficiaries of a belated British effort to prepare the colonies for independence.

They became writers, doctors, lawyers, engineers, nurses, teachers. It was a time of excitement, optimism and inspiration, also of sorrow and disappointment as the high hopes for self-rule crumbled.

Wole Soyinka the great Nigerian author, called them the Renaissance Generation.

On this special edition of The Strand, Aminatta Forna hears their story.

Aminatta Forna examines what happened to the so called 'Renaissance Generation'.
