Freddy Cole: 'I’m not my brother, I’m me'

He’s been dubbed "the jazz great with the panache of Duke Ellington and a voice like raw silk". Masterful vocalist and pianist Freddy Cole has been captivating listeners for over 50 years. He joins Jade Barker in the studio to talk about his career and stepping out of the shadow of his brother Nat King Cole.

Also on the show: it was the story that captured the world's attention. As a film about the rescue of 33 Chilean miners in 2010 is made, we speak to French actress Juliette Binoche about bringing the tale to the big screen.

And ever been told you look like a celebrity? We meet the photographer turning doppelgangers into an art form.
