Idris Elba: 'Nelson Mandela was a flawed man'

It's not easy embodying an icon - so says actor Idris Elba as his film version of Nelson Mandela comes to movie theatres. On this all-film edition of "Encore!", Catherine Nicholson quizzes that actor and his co-star Naomie Harris, plus director Justin Chadwick, on how they approached the story for "Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom".

Also on the show: our film critic Lisa Nesselson gives us the lowdown on a sporting legend, Sir Jackie Stewart. "Weekend Of A Champion” is the Roman Polanski-produced documentary about two days in the life of his Formula 1 World Championship-winning 1971 season.

We also check out the latest restorations of classics by Fritz Lang and Jacques Tati.
