Vanessa Redgrave 'honoured' by Brighton Festival

Oscar-winning actress Vanessa Redgrave says she is "honoured" to be the guest director of this year's Brighton Festival.

She told BBC Breakfast that the festival will showcase over 100 events including the premiere of her son Carlo Nero's documentary The Killing Fields.

The film examines whether a change in land taxation could help protect wildlife in Europe.

Nero said it was "a great opportunity" for the film to be shown at the festival.
