After a soft launch with repeats on Ai Weiwei and Oliver Sacks, the winter season of Imagine was promulgated this week.

We are promised a repeat of a film by Gracie Otto on theatre impresario Michael White; a documentary on the stage version of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon, made by former Arena director Adam Low; and an updated film on Wilko Johnson, made by Alan Yentob's Somerset neighbour Julien Temple.

There's also new film on architect David Chipperfield, who's been redeveloping the Royal Academy - Yentobs have holidayed at the Chipperfield summer home in Northern Spain.  And a whole film on Imagine regular Sir Antony Gormley, one of several artists who donated art for auctions to help Kids Company when it was in trouble ahead of its collapse. Sir Antony is filmed in Florence, preparing for an exhibition.

Plus, as we promised, Howard Jacobson and Alan visit Venice for a learned discussion on Shylock, ahead of Howard's new novel on the topic.
