Louvre on the move

The Louvre is on the move - by the end of next year, another branch of the iconic museum will open its doors in Abu Dhabi. A selection of the new museum's treasures are making their debut at the original Paris Louvre. We take a look.

Also on today’s show: we take a look at a rap battle that’s gone far beyond a war of words. Top-selling French rapper Rohff is to stand trial for attempted murder, accused of being part of a gang that savagely beat up a shop assistant in a boutique belonging to rival rapper Booba.

Finally, controversial American photographer Robert Mapplethorpe had no hang-ups about letting it all hang out. But two exhibitions here in Paris show that he was above all an artist with an obsessive quest for aesthetic perfection.
