Actor Bill Murray on Boris Johnson, classical music and comedy

Europe Editor and Presenter

Actor and comedian Bill Murray is out with a new movie, but it may not be what you’re expecting if you’re only familiar with his early work.

In the 70s, he was an iconic member of Saturday Night Live. In the 80s he was a blockbuster movie star.

From Ghostbusters to Caddyshack to Groundhog Day, his movies are classics, revered to this day.

His performance in Lost in Translation saw him nominated for an Oscar.

Then a chance meeting with a German cellist changed the course of his career.

In recent years, he’s been touring with Jan Vogler, mixing music with literature on stage, and now they’ve made a film of their performance.

We spoke to Bill Murrary and Jan Vogler and asked how they had met.
