Does Sir Kenneth Branagh want to run the National Theatre?

This week, the National Theatre's chief executive exited stage right from the organisation. Under different circumstances that could have left Sir Kenneth Branagh in charge.

Instead, on Friday he announced that he was launching his own theatre company. The troupe includes Rob Brydon and Dame Judi Dench, and will be at a West End theatre for a year.

For this week's vlog - Sir Kenneth spoke exclusively to Will Gompertz.
