Russia's famous clown Slava Polunin brings show to London

He is one of the most famous clowns in the world, attracting thousands of fans to his shows in cities from Los Angeles to Moscow.

The Russian Slava Polunin is in London this Christmas for his production "Snowshow".

But Polunin is a clown who is as attractive to regular theatre goers as he is to families and children.

In his dressing room at London's Southbank centre, he gave an interview to Alexander Kan, Arts Editor of the BBC's Russian Service.
