Presented by Mark Lawson. Stephen Fry's new documentary, in which he takes his black cab to all 50 US states, looks at how vast, diverse and unique the country is. He talks to Mark about his adventures and the essential differences between the British and the Americans. The uncensored versions of both Bob Guccione's film Caligula and Pasolini's Salo have now been released on DVD. Is their uncompromising content still as shocking as when they caused scandal some 30 yerars ago? Mark discusses the two films' strengths and weaknesses with Germaine Greer and Kate Saunders. Le Corbusier is regarded as one of the twentieth century's most influential architects, but for many years in Britain his influence was seen as malign. In recent years, though, his reputation has risen again, as Mark discovered when he went to see a new exhibition, Le Corbusier - The Art of Architecture, in Liverpool.
