Back on top: David Bowie scores his first number 1 in 20 years

David Bowie’s hotly-anticipated new album "The Next Day" has lived up to the hype with critics and fans, scoring the veteran musician his first number one UK chart placing since 1993. We also meet Iraq war veteran-turned-novelist Kevin Powers, who put his recollections to paper in "The Yellow Birds". And the big movie release of the week is "Cloud Atlas". We ask whether stars Tom Hanks and Halle Berry can hold this "unfilmable" story together.
