Henri Cartier-Bresson, the 'father of photojournalism'

Henri Cartier-Bresson, who is credited with inventing the art of street photography, created some of the 20th century's most resonant images. To mark ten years since his death, Paris' Pompidou Centre is showcasing an enormous selection of works from his seven-decade career. We take a look around the exhibition.

Catherine Nicholson gives us a guided tour of the blurred lines where video games meet films, art, and music videos. It's at an exhibition right here in Paris.

Also on the show: as the art market booms, we look at the Francis Bacon painting that’s just sold for over €50 million.

Meanwhile, we find out just what happened to renowned writer and cynic Michel Houellebecq when he disappeared briefly in 2011.

And we discover Madame Butterfly’s modern, stripped-back look at the latest production of Giacomo Puccini’s classic opera here in Paris, 110 years after it was composed.
