With the world of radio usually invisible to us, only coming to life aurally, Philibert's new film (in cinema now) La Maison de la Radio lays entertainingly bare the often comic haps and mishaps of this major public radio station.

We recommend catching the screening on the 30th January, as Philibert himself will be giving a Q&A about the film, one of BFI Southbank January events you ought not to miss.
