Leonardo da Vinci at the Louvre: Historic exhibition marks 500 years since artist's death


Five centuries after the master of the Renaissance died, special events have been taking place in France, Italy and further afield to celebrate Leonardo da Vinci's visionary talent in both arts and science. Ten years in the making, a new exhibition showing at the Louvre is the largest collection of his work in any one place.


We also check out the new comic book from an iconic character: "Asterix and the Chieftain's Daughter" features the first female protagonist in the series' 60-year history.

And Ken Loach is back with a film that casts an unforgiving eye on modern Britain. "Sorry We Missed You" is his take on the so-called "gig economy"; we heard more from the veteran director at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
