Whilst no-one has gone quite as outré as Ian with the decorations, everyone's still making the most of the time available to perfect the presentation. Everyone, that is, except Mat, who sits calmly drinking a cup of tea and picking at his leftover ingredients while the others sweat over the intricacies of their showstoppers.

Ben Johns

I know that I won't be less of a person if I don't have children. But for women, the societal time limits which are in place for women are restrictive and not necessary. Its 2015, are we still valuing other people's happiness on if they are married or have children?

The biggest shock was to bestow the coveted Golden Lion for best film to From Afar, a Venezuelan debut by Lorenzo Vigas about a middle-aged gay man who gets involved with a potentially violent street kid. This was a brave and well-made movie but hardly the best in the competition.

One of the songs - The Snow and Ice Dance - was deemed by many to be suspiciously similar to Disney's Academy Award winning song. Despite the vocals being different and the lyrics being written in a different language, there are a troubling amount of similarities.

Why We Need Katie Hopkins

Sophie Deal | Posted 14.09.2015 | UK Entertainment
Sophie Deal

We've all heard the "if you haven't got something nice to say, don't say it" spiel. But freedom of speech is an important human entitlement and Hopkins is right to voice her thoughts. However awful, at least they give conscientious people the opportunity to undermine her with compassionate, reasoned stances.

Bob Chaundy

Josef Koudelka is something of a legend among photographers. He achieved worldwide fame by capturing the seismic shock felt by his fellow Czechs when, in the summer of 1968, Red Army tanks stormed into Prague to crush a government that had dared to depart from the Kremlin's diktat.

Dedicated to the B*****s

Lily Lovett

When it comes to hip-hop I can't help thinking all the work the suffragettes slogged their guts out for is being swiftly and odiously unravelled. Now I have to point out that I am a huge Drake fan and think Kanye is a lyrical genius, however there is a good sized portion of small-minded, unintelligent rappers implying 'you women are here to look good and have sex with us'.

Tim Thornton

I have never seen Mamma Mia!, the musical, nor (emphatically nor) the film. But I do believe my appreciation of the music created by ABBA to be as great as that of any other living human. So, in an attempt to demonstrate this, here are 10 songs that say it all.

At Last... Animation for Adults

Derek Malcolm | Posted 11.09.2015 | UK Entertainment
Derek Malcolm

At last a film at the Venice Festival that may well become a classic of its genre - Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson's Anomalisa. Stop motion animation was never this sophisticated, thanks to Kaufman's shrewd screenplay and Johnson's visual flair.

Writing Out Gender Bias

John Allen | Posted 11.09.2015 | UK Entertainment
John Allen

I thought we all lived in a modern society where things like gender and racial bias if not completely eliminated, were rapidly becoming a thing of the past in the west. It seems not. The fact that Naomi admitted to doing it herself gave me a little relief.

We Should Be Pushing for Better Assisted Living, Not Assisted Dying

Liz Carr | Posted 11.09.2015 | UK
Liz Carr

We would all prefer a pain free death with dignity. But this law is not the way to achieve it. Anyone can have worth and dignity if they have proper care and support - and that's what we should be pushing for. Assisted living not assisted dying.

Poker Is a Game. Poker Is a Sport. Poker Is Entertainment.

Alexandre Dreyfus | Posted 10.09.2015 | UK Sport
Alexandre Dreyfus

Poker has a large but fragmented global fan base that needs aggregation, innovation and disruption to be re-activated. I believe we need to enhance the game, create proper fan engagement - that doesn't exist anymore - and build content to fulfill an existing appetite.

This romantic view of the north of England is unsurprisingly endearing and I confess to having felt strangely enchanted by the north myself. But Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell is no sentimental drama.

Despite being the only person in the tent (and, probably, the country) who knows what mahlepi is, dreamboat Tamal is having a crisis of confidence, and seems to spend half the challenge looking round at everyone else to try and get a better idea of what's going on.

Lorna Harris

So here's to Friends. May it be shown on some obscure TV channel for many years to come. I hope it's still on when I am old and grey, so I can say 'oh. Those guys. They have always (cheesy pun alert) been there for me'.
